Introverted? You Can Still Volunteer!

Volunteering is good for the soul and the body. But for introverts, the social aspects of volunteering can sometimes be daunting. Fear not! Here are five service projects that you can do on your own:

  1. Transcribe historical documents for the Smithsonian.

  2. Send a card, letter or note once a week to someone undergoing chemotherapy. Apply at Chemo Angels.

  3. Track bird populations with eBird.

  4. Sew emotional support blankets for Binky Patrol.

  5. Identify New York Wildlife, map our galaxy, or assist researchers in many other ways with Zooniverse.

We update our easy volunteer ideas regularly so check back to find more service work that works for you!
