Volunteering =)

I'm going to be looking into volunteering around post to help with my skills and such since I'm having a hard time finding a job. ((The only thing I regret about being a stay at home mom for so long.))

My first stop is registering with Army OneSource. (I already have an account but can't for the life of me remember it so I'm setting up a new one lol) Registration takes less then five minutes.

On the top right you will see "volunteer tool", I clicked on that on and now I see a map of the USA. There is a spot to click if you're already a volunteer, which I'm not, so I'll continue on and see what I need to do lol =) Okay, I guess I click on my state. ((Hang in there with me, we're doing a step by step to see what I find lol)) I'm going to click on Georgia! Hope I don't blow anything up!

I know see a list of "communities" for Georgia. Strolling to look for my area....
I see the volunteer coordinator and number and I click on that as well. It takes me to a page of "volunteer opportunities".

Now if I move my scroll bar down some I will see a list of opportunities to volunteer for!!! This was easy!!

If you're looking for a way to help and build your skills in your free time, this is a great way to do it!! Now, I'm going to look at the details of each one I see listed and see how I go about signing up!! Wish me luck!

And good luck to you to those who choose this as well!

Also check out my "Job Search" posts for helpful info:

  1. Could someone volunteer if we are in South Korea?

  2. I think the best bet for you to find out would be to contact your army community service (acs) on post. I heard there really isn't much to do there so the family I know got into all kinds of activities with CYS. I would check both those places. Good luck =)
