President Obama has said that the challenges America faces are unprecedented, and that we need to build a new foundation for economic growth in America. The President has also announced a new program called United We Serve that is designed to encourage Americans to volunteer more. The Administration has already begun work with dramatic new investments in education, health care and clean energy, but it cannot be done alone.

Consider volunteering in your community even if it's only an hour a week. With all the cutbacks to nonprofit organizations with the recession and the Madoff scandal, your community needs you more than ever. And it's great work experience for the resume! Consider the ways you can use your talents to help in your local area. It will surely be worth it.
