Start with things you are passionate about. Else food banks or soup kitchens could be a good starting point

Volunteermatch.com

Look for events/conferences in topics of interest. Start with small stuff ie ushers at events (assuming when COVID is over) to see if you like the people the offer to commit more time. Great way to get free tickets to great events!

Also a sports or favorite hobby club. I was secretary on the committee and coordinated fundraising and catering for our club and volunteer coached new members.

So when I started interviewing for my current position (6 years in consulting experience ) I had expressed my salary expectations as $125K-$130K per annum which was met with absolute guarantee and positivity however after interview (which went amazing one of my best interviews) they came up with $97K offer with 160 hours PTO. Non negotiable because I needed to learn the ways of the company as I didn’t have specific industry experience they were looking for. Did I get severely low balled?
