  1. Notes from the 2012 National Conference on Volunteering and Service (www.volunteeringandservice.org):

    The venue was the McCormick Conference Center in Chicago. Keynote speakers included Chicago mayor Raim Emanuel, Jill Biden, and Barbara Bush, and actor Kevin Bacon. I took away a number of good ideas from many great organizations. I would like to share two organizations of particular interest related to the environment.

    TerraCycle (http://www.terracycle.com/en-US) offers national programs to collect previously non-recyclable or hard to recycle waste. Most offer free shipping as well as a donation for each piece of garbage that is collected.

    RandomKid (http://www.randomkid.org) is an award winning organization for kids, educators and youth group leaders that is changing the world.

    Both websites offer a variety of project ideas, resources, and support information for educators. Check them out!
