I am writing to express my interest in the volunteer position available at the Department of Veterans Affairs. It has always been my goal to contribute my time and effort toward bettering the lives of others and working for political, social, and economic change.
I am currently a student at ABC University earning my degree in political science and social work. It is my hope to apply my experience at the VA to my work on the DEF bill. I'm motivated to help make lasting changes to this city's socioeconomic policies.
I am a hard worker who is dedicated to this field and interested in learning as much as I can about the ins and outs of the industry. I have strong leadership and teamwork skills and am adept at self-starting and independent projects.
I will contact your office sometime next week to set up a time to speak with you. I look forward to meeting you in person and discussing this wonderful opportunity. Thank you for your time and consideration.
