Find an organization that matches your interests? Contact them via email or phone, using the information on their listing. Tell them that you found them on BJE Impact, and ask if they might have a way for you to volunteer with them, or work on a specific project with them. Ask them what they need. Find out if there is something that you can help with, and if it would be a good match for you what are looking to get out of a service project. Find out as much as you can about the organization and the volunteer opportunity in order to determine if it is the right fit for you.

Before you volunteer, ask yourself what you already know about the cause or issue, and learn as much as you can about it. The more  you understand the issue, the more you will appreciate the impact that you will be making as you volunteer. On each volunteer listing, we suggest some related “Learning & Education Resources” to help you easily find information to read that will help you understand the issue.
