Volunteering offers many benefits to you, the volunteer, as well as those being served.

Key to making the most of contributing your time and effort is finding the right volunteer opportunity that fits your skills, free time, and your physical and emotional abilities. You can even volunteer on the Internet without leaving your home by being a "virtual volunteer."

Volunteering doesn't have to be formal, such as for an organization or a formalized activity. Perhaps, you could just help a friend, neighbor or fellow support group member who has a need. You could even show up at just about any non-profit and they'll give you something to do that would help.

If you can do research and/or write, consider volunteering to help us develop and add more useful information. Call 212.586.5600 or write: Survivorship A to Z.

Before you begin to volunteer, understand the rules about any government or private benefits you receive to make sure that volunteering doesn't affect them.
