The call to volunteer has always animated Americans, and it's always nice to learn about a new way to find volunteer opportunities. Serve.gov is a government website managed by the Corporation for National and Community Service, and the search engine on their homepage is a great place to start. Just type in some keywords in the "What interests you?" box, and then type in a location in the "Where would you like to volunteer?" box, and click on "Find Opportunities Now". Further down on the homepage, visitors can avail themselves of sections that help with getting a service project started ("Getting Started"), a place to share volunteer project trials and tribulations ("Share Your Story"), and a place to disseminate the good word about Serve.gov ("Spread the Word"). Visitors should also take a gander at their "Stories of Service" blog for inspiration.
