Nonproft Career Round-Up: National Volunteer Week 2011 Edition

Hope everybody had a nice weekend.  Did you know that it is National Volunteer Week starting today?  That's right, from April 11-16, we are honoring all the great volunteers in this country.  It's also a good time to start volunteering yourself.  With that in mind, are today's links...

  • 'Connecting With Your Roots in Volunteerism'-This is a wonderful post about the wonderful experiences you can gain through volunteerism.  This is a must read and, as a former volunteer myself, I can attest to what the author writes about.  I often reconnect with the organizations I volunteered with; you can really make connections that last a lifetime.
  • Volunteer Maryland-This is the official blog for Volunteer Maryland, and it contains great posts on the value of volunteering, specifically focusing on AmeriCorps.  A good read if you are looking to go down that path.
  • Trollwood Performing Arts School-If you are passionate about the performing arts, you should consider volunteering at Trollwood.  In the particular post I have linked to, you can read about one of the volunteers there, Julie Snortland.  It will give you a great idea of what it is like to volunteer there.  And when you are done reading, there is information at the end of how to sign up to be a volunteer at Trollwood School.
