Are you a Volunteer?
I love volunteering! I have been volunteering at my local animal shelter for the past few months. It is so much fun to help animals in my local community. I like volunteering at the shelter because it compliments my job as an Environmental Education and Outreach Coordinator. I get to help the environment by doing the big picture work and help individual animals one at a time at the shelter. Volunteering is a great way to enhance your school resume, college applications or to simply do what you love. Check out local volunteer opportunities near you at: http://www.volunteer.gov/gov/
