Local Service Agencies
Most local agencies are always in need of volunteers and we will be happy to assist you in finding the perfect placement for you.
Take some time to browse through the catagories and see if anything looks appealing to you. Don't hesitate to ask the staff at the OCSE for an introduction to an area agency or to help you with making contact.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Call in advance to set up a time to come and learn about the programs, meet the staff, and see where you'll be working.
- Once you make a committment to volunteer, it's very important that you follow through. If you cannot make your scheduled hours, for any reason, please call the agency to let them know.
- Be sure to ask about dress code. Some organizations (such as the Northern Indiana Food Bank) require that you wear certain types of clothing when you come to volunteer.
