This is the book to read if you are interested in volunteering somewhere for your vacation. The book is arranged alphabetically by volunteer organization and there's a little something for everyone included.

Information included for each entry is:

Name of volunteer group; contact information including email address & website; project type, e.g. historic preservation, natural conservation, education, etc.; mission statement of the organization; year the organization was founded; funding sources; a description of the work they do; a description of project location(s); a timeline; cost (if there is any); how to get started and finally, needed skills and specific populations, e.g. this is the section that will tell you if you can participate if you are under 18 or disabled.

Sprinkled throughout are brief essays that serve as testimonials by past participants.

A very interesting and enriching piece of literature.
