Volunteering for Ashoka Seattle is always super rewarding AND really fun! The staff is great and the youth they work with in their Youth Venture program are all amazing. If I had more time I would definitely want to be a mentor and follow a youth team all semester (I highly suggest this) but unfortunately right now I can only squeeze in the occasional panel. Here's the link that explains what I'm talking about because I feel like I'm rambling! http://www.ashokaseattle.org/get-involved/volunteer/
