Finding Community Service Opportunities

Happy Holidays! I hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your friends and family and celebrating all the truth, beauty, and goodness in your life!

This is the season of giving and the perfect time of year to express your joy and appreciation for everything and everyone in your life.

One way to do this is to offer your time for community service and make a difference in the lives of your fellow human beings, as well as the environment and animals.

I’ve heard lots of high school students say that it’s hard to find community service opportunities these days. Colleges expect students to engage in meaningful community service during high school, so it’s important for you to find something you can do to help others. There are literally millions of opportunities in the United States and around the world if you look in the right places.

One of my favorite websites is www.serve.gov. You can enter your zip code and easily find several opportunities based on your location and interest!
