Volunteering in the New Year

January 9, 2018

What are your plans for 2018? Maybe you want to get fit, work towards a promotion, or spend more time with your family. If your resolution is to get involved with your community, we’ve got you covered.

Start your search here and find how you can volunteer in 2018, whether you’re interested in health, education, or environmental protection.
 

Provide Health and Safety

Whether or not you’ve been through medical training, there are important ways that you can contribute to people’s physical needs.

Educate Your Community

You don’t need a teaching degree to support the spread of knowledge. Whether you’re a subject-matter expert or not, you can contribute to public education.

Empower People with Injuries and Disabilities

The price for medical costs, assistive technology, and proper facilities can add up quickly for people with disabilities and the organizations supporting them.

Clean and Promote the Environment

Do you love the outdoors? You can help keep them clean and fun with these volunteer programs.

Build a Stronger Community

If you want to serve people in need and strengthen your society, one of these programs might be just what you’re looking for.

Other Resolutions

Maybe you already volunteer with an organization you love, or volunteering just isn’t in your plans for this year. Not a problem! If you have other goals — improving your health, getting outdoors, staying informed, or finding a new job — check out our post on 2017 New Year’s Resolutions for a little inspiration.
