I am currently vacationing on the beaches at Cape Cod, Massachusetts and trying to forget about the occasional rain, but as a blogger I cannot go on vacation, so let’s review quickly the new federal website for volunteer opportunities called Serve.gov.
This federal government website is an "online resource for not only finding volunteer opportunities in your community, but also creating your own." Enter a keyword and ZIP code to find service needs and contact information in your community, or register your own service opportunity. Also offers toolkits (such as for organizing a book drive) and a place to share your service story.
The site is managed by The Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that organizes the volunteer efforts of millions of Americans through the Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC, and Learn and Serve America programs.
You can add Serve.gov to the other resources about volunteering that we covered here and mention them to your library customers.
