This is the blog presentation of Dr. Lori Gore-Green about the importance of teens getting involved in community service. The website Volunteennation.org provides teens with a unique shot at community service. This organization allows teens to choose a location and a topic they are interested in. With this information, Volunteen Nation then creates a list of projects that they can choose from that match their interests. Dr. Lori Gore-Green is always encouraging young adults to participate and volunteer. A little bit of help can go a long way.
