Volunteering in a group is one of the most popular ways to volunteer. School groups, faith-based, corporate, community, and civic groups all want opportunities to volunteer together. Volunteer groups have the advantage of getting a large project done in a short amount of time. Sometimes this poses a challenge for nonprofit organizations to be able to house and manage the group. When groups give plenty of time to plan and prepare a project with an organization, great things can happen!
