Regardless of your individual reasons, one of the hardest parts of the volunteering process can be finding the opportunity that fits your personality and goals.
TeenService.org is an on-line resource for teens to learn from other teens about finding and pursuing community service projects.
The site features video interviews produced by and featuring teen volunteers in which they share their insights and experiences with other teens for the purpose of helping fellow teens find inspiration and direction.
