I am Somebody: Top 5 Places to Volunteer in Houston
The best places to get involved are the ones you’re interested in. The more engaged you are, the more helpful you’ll be and the more you’ll get out of the experience. Here are a few ideas of where you can volunteer in Houston:
This is a really great place to get involved if you’re interested in any kind of English field – journalism, writing, teaching, publishing.
Interested in architecture? Real Estate Development? Building & Construction? Habitat for Humanity is a great place to learn the fundamentals.
If you like fashion or you’re interested in women’s studies (or both!), this is the place for you. According to their website, the mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Pediatrics Unit or Recovery Room of a Hospital
If you’re looking for good experiences in medicine, these places are traditionally the best. Pediatrics is traditionally the best place to get the most interaction with patients – particularly kiddos, if you’re into that kind of thing! The Recovery Room is a great place to watch surgeons at work.
If you’ve got an extra busy schedule, the Houston Food Bank is a great place to get some volunteer hours in over a holiday break.
