Check out one of the coolest community projects we've seen, The 10,000 Hours Show -- a student-led effort to recruit and recognize young volunteers who serve local nonprofits, culminating each spring in a free concert just for volunteers. As their website says, "You volunteer, you rock."
In Iowa, the organizers, all twenty-something volunteers including our own Amanda Styron, have recognized over 71,000 hours of service in the past three years with concerts by Ben Folds, Guster and Cake.
This year, they are partnering with the United Way of America to help other communities start the program. If you work in student life, the United Way, or another community organization, they would love to hear from you!
