    What kind of Volunteer work are you interested I'm guessing something with people like a old folks home? How far are you waning to drive? The UC San Diego Medical Center has a volunteer program I think you are pretty qualified for from talking with you. I wouldn't be surprised if other closer medical places had something similar.

    Become a Volunteer At UCSD Health System
    HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER

    The process to become a new volunteer is as follows:
    Attend an orientation and turn in the three application forms
    Commit to 100 hours/six months of volunteer service (once a week for four hours).
    Have a placement interview.
    Complete initial TB skin test (free at UCSD Medical Center) at initial interview and have it read 2-3 days later.
    Be screened for immunity to Mumps, Measles, Rubella and Chicken Pox (Varicella). This is done by a blood draw or verification of vaccinations on an immunization record.
    Complete Organizational Oriention (on-line training).
    Purchase a uniform ($20).
    Obtain an ID badge ($10 to replace if forgotten or lost).
    Obtain parking permit.
    Be scheduled for department specific training.
    Complete the six-week TB skin test.

    COMPETENCIES OF SUCCESSFUL VOLUNTEERS

    We are not able to accept court-ordered service applications
    Good communication skills in English
    Self-starter who needs minimal supervision
    Good listening skills and ability to follow instructions
    Dependable and flexible
    Positive and professional attitude
    Physical ability to perform tasks of assigned work area

    There is always animal shelter that is what I plan on doing if we are still here next year I plan volunteering full time at the ASPCA if I can't find a job sense DD will be starting full classes.

    The ASYMCA puts out emails with volunteer opportunities. I spend most of my time at my kids school(s) and with our youth group at church.
    "What's so good about good-bye? It is good to be reminded that life is brief, at best, with no dress rehearsals, and the seasons we are privileged to share together are even more fleeting. Good-bye is good if it teaches us to cherish the life and breath, strength and sound mind, and the moments we are allowed to walk side by side with a friend. Good-bye is good if, in that difficult moment, we stand still long enough to give thanks to God for the lessons we've learned together, the love given, and the love received, recognizing that these are gifts from the hand of God." ~Marshele Carter Waddell

    Check with the USO at the airport. They are always looking for people here to help man the USO lounge.

    The San Diego Food Bank, you can sign up on their website! I take my students there a few times a month and they love it because they constantly have different tasks for them to do...three hour slots usually and everyone is super nice!

    If you want something military-related, check out the Fisher House. They put up families of people being treated at Balboa Hospital. Great program.

    Also, I am a big fan of the Ronald McDonald house.
