The President has said that the challenges America faces are unprecedented, and that we need to build a new foundation for economic growth in America. The Administration has begun this work with dramatic new investments in education, health care, and clean energy, but we cannot do this alone here in Washington. Economic recovery is as much about what you’re doing in your communities, as what we’re doing in Washington – and it’s going to take all of us, working together. Serve.gov makes it easy for you and all Americans not only to find ways to serve in your communities, but also to create and promote your own service projects.
This summer, President Obama is calling on all of us – young and old, from every background, all across this country – to participate in our nation’s recovery and renewal by serving in our communities. From June 22 to September 11, United We Serve will begin to engage Americans from coast to coast in addressing community needs in education, health, energy and the environment, and community renewal.
To make it easy for Americans to get involved, the President is urging Americans to visit Serve.gov. Visitors to Serve.gov can type in their zip code to find local volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers by registering their organization’s projects , or get ideas for creating their own projects with friends, families, and neighbors. Plan a project, join a project and register your project at www.serve.gov.
