Do Something, Like Volunteer


Take Action!

You'll be cashing in once Obama enacts his plan of giving financial aid in exchange for service hours. And if that's not enough, you'd be amazed at how happy you can make someone else by giving an hour a day or a few hours a week, and in the end it will make you feel great about yourself too!


So now you know why to volunteer, here's the how:

Already Volunteered? Great, let us know! Post your project or check out our youth grants to fund your projects — you could win up to $100,000 for your cause!
