What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

It's a city of 10 million+ people, there are plenty. - Jul 2022

Numerous. Check with the CLO. I saw opportunities with special needs children, animal shelters, home building (techo build), etc. - Mar 2018

Lots of opportunities, watch the CLO Facebook page for ideas. - Apr 2017

Plenty, but you have to find them. They won't find you. - Sep 2015

We found several through the embassy; no doubt there are many others through church groups and NGOs. - May 2015
