Get involved in your community
If you want to give back to your new community by volunteering, do some research on VolunteerMatch to find opportunities in your area. If socializing is more up your alley, attend local events, fundraisers and gatherings in your community. You can also use Meetup to find social groups based on your hobbies or interests. Joining your neighborhood HOA board, signing up for a club membership, joining a sports team, or meeting up with your local college alumni group are some other ways to get involved in the community.
