If you are looking for a fulfilling volunteer project then try Americorps. They will train you to do what is needed to help you succeed on your volunteer project. The also help you pay for college.

Needs Improvement
Operations Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 7, 2013
I would not recommend for anyone to work for this government corporation. Management needs diversity training. Rules are not consistent and also not consistently followed. There is favortism and little to no promotability.
Pros
flexible work schedules, benefits, commuter program
Cons
mismanagement problems, loose rules and regulations, no set standards

Coordinates VISTA and Senior Corps programs in Kentucky
Kentucky State Program Specialist (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJuly 27, 2013
The Kentucky CNCS Office did an effective job with limited staff and budget to promote volunteerism in Kentucky, especially with the Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) and Senior Corps programs (Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions and Retired Senior Volunteer Program). The director and I were charged with monitoring the programs operated by sponsors and insuring that tax dollars were being utilized effectively.
Pros
were able to help many nonprofits in kentucky provide their services more effectively.
Cons
significant paperwork and recently uncertain budgets.

Fast moving environment with positive workers and a wealth of support.
AmeriCorps NCCC Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 27, 2012
Company oversees a wealth of AmeriCorps programs. The main office is in Washington DC. A very good company to work for, if you are interested in non-profit work, disaster management, or other service careers outside of the US Army.
