I have volunteered at least 10 hours a month, and usually 40 or more, every year since I was 10 years old. Volunteer work is part of the fabric of life for me.

Our family is SUPER involved in Boy Scouts. I also make time once or twice a month to take our kids to the food bank to volunteer since we all really enjoy helping. There are so many great organizations and so little time. I have noticed that, while I still consistantly volunteer, where I volunteer has changed as my children get older.

People can find time if they just schedule it. I volonteered with Virginia Defense Force.  I have two 2+ mile stretches of road that I pick up trash twice a year with Adopt-a- Highway. I do cemetery workshops once or twice a year where we clean, reset, repair gravestones that need work.

I spent a lot more time volunteering when the kids were younger and just a year ago took a step back.  Now I spend my time supporting the efforts of groups that they're involved in.  The intention is to volunteer more consistently with an organization that I can truly "get behind" when I allow life to include that activity again.

Sharon you have to make time it is simple as that, you schedule it it is a choice, just like reading books you have to schedule it like an appointment...if you do vigorous time blocking it will become second nature, Endre

I used to volunteer when we lived in CA at two different places (Police Dept in Truancy and the local Food Bank), and volunteered for 3 years here at one place (local hospital in OP Surgery).  I do love volunteering, though left it when I went into real estate.  I really want to go back, though would love to work with animals.  Unfortunately, those locations are all the way across town, and don't want to drive 45 minutes one-way, so I am currently rethinking that option Sharon Kowitz.  If I was not part of a 'Team' I don't think I could go back to volunteering being a newbie . . .  sounds like you worked some excellent projects yourself!!
