Make friends through volunteer work
Making friends as an adult can be challenging. It’s a bit harder than when we were kids and could plop down a cafeteria tray at school and chat with our classmates. But making friends at a more advanced age is not impossible. It just takes a little extra effort, especially if you’re looking for friends outside of your workplace.
One way to find friends is to meet people where they gather. There’s an abundance of volunteer opportunities in your community. Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people who share similar interests, including animal shelters, fine arts organizations you’re your local community garden center.
