  • Office volunteers may be just as well-trained as paid staff, but simply prefer the flexibility of not being employed.† Remember to slip into a position and lift gentlyódonít rock the ship! †


What You Can Do

  • Offer to help with office work.† Nearly every agency, organization, school and hospital needs help with office work.† They need help typing, collecting and entering data, filing, answering phone calls, handling mail, answering a crisis hot-line during non-business hours, distributing flyers, guiding tours, sorting and recording donations, staffing an information booth, etc.
  • Those with administrative skills may offer to help organize activities, fund-raising events, create exhibits, attend meetings, educate the public on available classes and services, write articles for bulletins and newspapers, organize and develop volunteer opportunities. †
  • Home computers allow some volunteers to work from home.† You may provide free legal advice, do simple accounting, translate materials, or stay in contact with a shut-in who has email. †
