How To: Volunteer

Posted by The Real Estate Storey Team on May 8, 2018

Our community is super important to us. Our WHOLE team lives, works and plays in Airdrie- and we love when we have the chance to give back!

Volunteering can be intimidating at first! How do you choose what cause to dedicate your time to? How to you get started? How do you find the volunteer opportunities that are right for you?

We’ve gathered up some resources to give you the tools to volunteer your time to whatever cause drives you!

  1. Get involved LOCALLY!
    This one is probably pretty straight forward, but http://www.volunteerairdrie.ca/ is a one stop shop for opportunities, links and info for organizations in Airdrie looking for help!
  1. Where do you want to volunteer?
    We get it- this is a big question! There are TONS of deserving organizations and causes so how do you narrow down where you want to give your time & effort? Check out these articles to help you figure it out:
