Before Calling an Agency:
It is a good idea to know what you are going to say and to practice ahead of time:
The following is a simple guide:
Hello. My name is ____________. I am a student at______(name of school) ___ in Fairfax County Public Schools. I am contacting your agency because I am interested in volunteer and service opportunities. May I please speak to your volunteer coordinator? (use the name of the person if available)
Good afternoon. My name is ________, and I am a student at ______(name of school)___. I am interested in performing a service for the community. I would like to talk to you about what I could do to help your organization. Is this a good time for you to talk?
From this point on, you will need to simply follow the lead of the other person. Be sure to find out:
BEST OF LUCK!!!
