Once you have found a green support group you want to join, the next step is figuring out what your strengths are. What can you contribute to the group? You may only be interested in the actual environmental work itself, but in time you may discover opportunities in fundraising, public relations, publicity campaigns and recruiting new members. Do you have good organizational skills? Excellent people skills? You could find yourself involved in a much different way than you originally thought, based on your abilities. It's important to realize you could have a larger impact on the organization than just a face in the crowd on a recycling run or beach cleanup day. It's also good for the green support group organizers to know if that's what you'd rather be doing. Any non-profit group needs all the expertise it can find; yours might be just what your local environmental group needs. Talk with your local organizers to learn what their current needs are-you may be just what they are looking for.
