I was hoping to be active in something I'm passionate about but there seems to be nothing out there, the causes I am willing/able to help don't want my help. Alternatively I was hoping to get in touch with habitat for humanity to see if I could help out but also learn window framing/other home DIY reno/repair skills (like an unpaid apprenticeship - lend a hand under the direction of experienced people), or help wire/set up networks/computers but when I reached out it sounds they want professionals to handle construction aspects and everyone else can do general tasks like cleanup/painting/yard work. I assume that with today's litigation-happy environment there are likely liability concerns and other red tape in the way.
Any suggestions or advice how I can get involved? It feels as finding a cause willing to accept help is as difficult as finding a full time job! I'm starting to see why all these kids are going to 3rd world countries to build schools and such, it's rather depressing and just absurd.
