Fab Summer Activity: Volunteer
Earlier this week, the Obama administration unveiled their latest community service initiative. Through "United We Serve" President Obama is calling on all Americans to give back and volunteer this summer. Finding volunteer opportunities has never been easier; you can use the government site Serve.gov or others like volunteermatch.org, idealist.org, and liveunited.org to search for volunteer opportunities. Serve.gov is a really great site because it allows you register a volunteer event you planned on the website and people can sign-up through there. Giving back to your community is genuinely rewarding, but don't forget that volunteering is a great resume builder and networking tool.
