Ways to Help Your Community

-Look around! You can find tons of local opportunities in your newspaper, on the local news, or even at school.
-See if your school supports a volunteer program. If not, see if you can!
-Try to find a local organization for volunteering, like 4-H or scouting organizations.

Ways to Help Your Country
-Assuming you live in the U.S., scouting organizations are a good place to start. The Girl Scouts of the United States of America are perfect and can be really fun if you and a couple of friends get involved. Or, if you're a guy, there's the Boy Scouts of America
-For both genders, 4-H is pretty creative and fun.

Ways to Help Your World
-Try to go green. It's not really a service for other people, but it is in a way. It doesn't have to be huge. Just a few steps can go a LONG way. Here's a site with zillions of guides for all sorts of places you can go green.
