No matter where your interest lies, there’s a volunteer opportunity out there to match it. Pittsburgh Cares gathers dozens and dozens of volunteer opportunities from their regional nonprofit partners and lists them on their website. They make it easy for anyone to volunteer by allowing you to search by date through their calendar, or by keyword, or by proximity, or various other criteria.

The opportunities run the gamut. You can assist children with their homework, or volunteer at a library, or help refurbish and recycle computers. Too sedentary for your tastes? How about picking up litter, or helping start up a garden, or how about coaching kids in baseball?
