So do you think your a leader with good judgement? Do you have a lot of professional qualifications but feel that you could be using those skills for the betterment of humankind? Well then maybe joining the board of a local non-profit volunteer organization would be just the ticket for you. It's the perfect place for a Type A personality who cares.

The Volunteer Center is hosting over seventy organizations at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and they're all looking to fill positions on their Boards. It's a great opportunity to network within the local volunteer community, evaluate some organizations, and drop off a business card or two (just like with your college applications, if you want to be a hotshot executive, you're going to want something like this on your CV). There will be groups representing the entire panopoly of charitable causes in the following categories:

  • Animals/Environment/Wildlife
  • Arts/Culture/Humanities
  • Children and Youth
  • Community/Housing/Economic Development
  • Education
  • Health and Human Services
  • Recreation/Leisure/Sports
  • Seniors
  • Women/Girls

If you're not some high-powered business person or bored trust funder, you can probably just bring intelligence, passion and a commitment to help and get a strong look. The event starts at five and goes until seven, so go hop in a cab right now!
