Volunteering is a simple, easy way to get involved in your local community and a great opportunity to make friends along the way. Finding a local organization that supports your interests gives you a new hobby to enjoy while making a difference. It also gives you a chance to make local connections if you are on a job hunt or if you are just interested in networking with others.
Join a Club
If you are looking for a hobby but don’t have the hours necessary for volunteering, consider joining a club! It’s a good way to meet people with similar interests while sharing your passion with others. Whether you enjoy hiking, yoga, reading, or photography, most towns and large cities will have local clubs!
Attend Neighborhood Events
Whether it’s a neighborhood block party or community garage sale, take advantage of the opportunity! Be on the lookout for neighborhood signs or talk with the neighborhood committee to learn about upcoming events. Soon enough, the more events you attend you’ll find that new faces will become old friends.
Throw a Housewarming Party
What better way to introduce your friends and family to your new home than throw a housewarming party? Invite your neighbors as a chance to casually meet the neighborhood, sparking conversation in a relaxed environment. Countless studies show that people who know their neighbors feel safer and more at home in their community. Do the whole block a favor and get everyone together for a meet and greet!
Get out in the Neighborhood
What seems the most simple is really the easiest way to meet others. Taking nightly walks will allow you to become familiar with the area, learning what neighbors live where. Take advantage of those pulling weeds or checking their mail by saying hello or striking small talk. Getting out in your neighborhood shows neighbors you are interested in engaging, and makes you seem more approachable.
