As you begin looking for places to do your community-based volunteer project, it's important to think about both what you will get out of it and what the organization you're working with will get out of it. Here's a link to an article in the
New York Times
about how student volunteers can really help (or hinder) the work of community service organizations. We'll have a visit on Thurs. afternoon from two people who work at the Center for Community Based Learning and Action, with lots of ideas about places where your volunteer work will be appreciated.
