What are you good at? Can you play an instrument, cook well, write a resume, or play a sport? Someone can benefit from what you know and be grateful for your time and generosity in sharing your experience. You will not only be providing a great service to another person, but you will feel good about having made a difference in his or her life. How rewarding it must be to help someone read, for example?
Try this: Choose to teach someone something or mentor him or her. Many communities have mentoring programs available like Big Brothers, Big Sisters. You can even help a family member, friend or neighbor to learn something new or with a project. You can find many opportunities for mentoring on the website, volunteermatch.org such as helping people to read and working with children.
