Contacting an Organization

1. Decide what area of service interests you.

 

2. Research the organizations in the area that fit with your interests. Get to know a little bit about what their mission is. Who is the contact person?

3. Make a phone call:

  • Introduce yourself, explain that you are interested in volunteering.
  • Ask : Are there any opportunities available for you? Do I need to have a parent with me? Do I need a permission slip? Where exactly do I report and to whom do I report?
  • Say THANK YOU.

4. If you need to leave a message make sure you speak slowly and clearly. Leave your full name, your contact number, and the reason why you were calling.
