that isn't in a shop and isn't the cunts that try to get money off you in the street. how do you find it?
Give them an idea of the type of work you would like to do, send them your CV, ask them for details of any activities/projects in your area.
That's one possibility.
The other is conacting one of the volunteering organisations (such as VSO) and see if they have any local branches or local projects that could do with some help. Or go whole hog and offer to give them (VSO) a year and a half of your life to make things better for folk in another country.
Or search for your local volunteer centre. They should have details of local organisations that need volunteers, and what roles are available. They usually do a sort of matching service with your skills.
Where I work we're looking for volunteer gardeners, so there is a wide range of things you could end up doing.
At www.csv.org.uk fixed me up with something when I'd just finished college. They also do away-from-home stuff if you fancy staying somewhere exotic (or, in my case, Manchester) for a little while.
