If you’ve been thinking about volunteering with an organization, summer is an ideal time to get involved. Organizations that rely on volunteers need the extra hands because many of their student volunteers are gone, and with fewer volunteers, it’s more likely that you’ll get the shifts and duties that you really want. Many organizations host summer volunteer trainings in the hopes of expanding their pool.
