    No one wants to volunteer to pick out your vest for the day.

    I'm sure there are some options posted on the NFLPA website for when their guys have to do
    community service work sanctioned by the state.

    Re: Volunteering

    Well, I volunteered 5 years of my life in service of this country.

    I have spent 7 years now as a youth football coach, 3 as a baseball coach.
    I spend thousands of hours a year helping youth become better athletes, but even more than that; better people as well.

    In sports it is easy for the less skilled kids to get left behind.
    What I specialize in is making those players realize that they can contribute to the team effort.
    I do a lot of work with these players in football.
    I have always had 3 goals for a player:

    1.
    To learn the game of football.
    2.
    To come out next year and play.
    3.
    Have fun.

    It's a rush watching a kids eyes get all big when they make a play.
    We had one player that really struggles; he is small and not aggressive.
    In a game 2 weeks ago he slipped through the O-line and got the RB 3 yards for a loss.
    He was so happy and so were his parents.
    To them, that was their Super Bowl.

    I bet some pros could learn something from kids.

    I applaud you guys for this, nothing makes a difference in a child's life better then being involved and teching.
    I work as a social worker and can tell you many benefits of helping kids out.
    Very cool.

    Re: Volunteering

    Currently doing some work with Amnesty International and this summer I should be getting some volunteer hours working at hospitals in Amsterdam.

    The most efficient way of getting hours IMO is stuff like Animal shelters, relief organizations, soup kitchens, hospitals, political campaigns etc.
