How to make-up and obtain an unpaid internship?

How does one go about asking an organization/company who has nothing advertised if they need any help? This would be unpaid. As I transition to another career (in this case, Urban Planning), I'm trying to get more experience and be productive at the same time. I'd like to volunteer/intern (whatever is the difference?) at firms or organizations that deal with that sort of thing (I can make that list). I think in my resume/e-mail I can explain my transferable skills (IT background). I'm doing this as I'll be attending graduate school in a year and would like to be productive outside of test prep and applications. Looking for tips on who to contact, if e-mail is the best way, and how to structure the communication.
