Anyone else feeling itchy and want to help? I'm looking especially for high-school aged people who are interested in community service but don't know where to start. The idea is to put together a Faire, much like a Career or College Faire, with a bunch of representatives from different organizations looking for teen volunteers. I'd like to have the Faire at a couple local high schools, possibly at a couple of the local community colleges, and maybe one or two other venues. A lot of putting it together will involve calling schools and the service organizations-- mostly, we'll be organizing the whole thing. If you're interested, email me at email@example.com or message me on AIM at howlsoftly!
(By "local," I mean the Bay Area/Silicon Valley sort of region, though if someone wants to implement the idea somewhere else, we should definitely coordinate, and see about forming an Organization with a Name and Such.)
