If You Want to Learn Some Skills and Give Back to Your Community, Consider Volunteering

I have always been the sort to volunteer.  From executive boards of non-profits to helping out at one-time events, there have been points where my weekly volunteer hours have eclipsed my actual working hours.  Volunteering is a great way to share your skills, learn new skills, help people in your community, and make your part of the world a better place to live.
If you are going to volunteer, however, consider volunteering with organizations that will teach/allow you to teach the skills that would come in handy during a disaster/survival situation.  Organizations you may want to consider include:

These are just a few of the organizations that provide important services to their community and can provide you a good opportunity to learn health/fitness/survival skills. You may also want to consider the Peace Corps, tutoring at your local school, helping out at one of the myriad non-profits in your community, volunteering at your local county fair, etc.
