Workers who dream of doing this in retirement: 26%
Volunteering doesn’t just keep you busy, it also makes your community a better place.
Maybe you could take on more responsibility in a service organization or place of worship.
Or, you might cast an even wider net, by teaching adult literacy, leading a 4-H club, becoming a master gardener, building houses with Habitat for Humanity or working at a no-kill pet shelter. The list is virtually endless.
Bonus: You’ll likely make new friends when you volunteer. You may encounter a wide range of ages, too, rather than being stuck with your own demographic.
