Most likely, you already have all of the skills necessary to be a great volunteer. However, the following skills will help you with your mission:
- Interpersonal skills – You’ll be meeting and interacting with a lot of people from different walks of life. Interpersonal skills will help you to adapt to different situations, connect with people and do a great job.
- Reliability – The people we help rely on us for help. A reliable volunteer will be committed to our organisation, its mission and the people we are trying to help.
- Listening – As a volunteer, you will meet a variety of persons who want their story to be told. It’s important that you listen to them because often, you will be the only ear that they have.
While these skills are important, you must, above all, be committed to helping families who are most in need of our help.
