Find a Volunteer Opportunity
You can use the USA Freedom Corps Volunteer Network to find volunteer opportunities at home or abroad. Just enter geographic information, such as zip code or state, and your area of interest, so you can access service opportunities near your home or office, across the country or overseas.
Additionally, more than 350 American communities have Points of Light Member Volunteer Centers. These Volunteer Centers provide essential, locally-based infrastructure to support volunteering. Their work is focused in four core areas: connecting people with opportunities to serve, building capacity for effective local volunteering, promoting volunteering, and participating in strategic initiatives to mobilize volunteers.

For Baby Boomers - Get Involved!
"Get Involved" is a national awareness and recruitment campaign aimed at the nation’s 77 million baby boomers. Launched in December 2005 by the Corporation for National and Community Service, in collaboration with America’s nonprofit community and private-sector organizations that share a commitment to civic responsibility, the campaign features bilingual newspaper, magazine, radio and television public service announcements (PSAs).
Americans of all ages – individuals, families, and groups – are answering the President’s Call to Service by volunteering and making a difference in their communities. The President’s Volunteer Service Award, an initiative of the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, honors America’s volunteers and encourages even more Americans to get involved.
