You may have noticed that the top government officials in the U.S. have asked the nation to volunteer and help build up this country to where it used to be once again. I am not going to talk about the controversy that surrounded some of the comments that were made by some of these folks. But I can tell you from experience that by volunteering, not only you help your community, but you also build long-lasting relationships with others, which could lead to doors being opened for you in the future.
Catalista is a wonderful iPhone application that lets you get involved in your community and help others when they are in need. The good thing about the volunteer work is that you are going to have many options to choose from, and you can offer whatever you can to help out. There are certain things that most of us do to keep our day job, but in your volunteer work, you can do what you love and help your community in the process as well.
What I love about Catalista is the fact that it shows you relevant information about each of the listings that you get in your area. You can also view opportunities on the map and choose the ones that you can fit in your schedule. The search function is useful also as you can somewhat find opportunities that you can help out with.
All in all, Catalista is a very useful free iPhone app that helps you find volunteer work opportunities in your area and help your community with your talent. Whether you are in the process of finding a new job or have some time to spare for your community, volunteering your work is an admirable way of helping others in these tough times.
