Social, Fraternal, Service and Faith organizations provide great opportunities to foster meaningful connections and engage in social interaction. These groups may be nationwide with branches or chapters in each state, or may be locally-run organizations that cater to a myriad of interests and hobbies members may wish to pursue in a friendly, interactive environment.
Activities, benefits and level of involvement will vary between organizations. Some organizations are focused on charitable works or volunteering while others may arrange meetups and group activities. Certain groups may also help members develop communicative, leadership or technical skills. Networking opportunities, support groups, life coaches and more may assist people with disabilities or illnesses.
They are usually based on a specific interest or issue whether that be a hobby, community service, vocation, social or cultural affiliation or faith. Examples of these include: Rotary Club, Lions Club, Kiwanis, Polish Club, Italian Club, French Club, Deaf Senior Club, MS Support Group, Knights of Columbus, Ladies Guild, etc.
