Ask yourself “What breaks my heart?” and “What makes me come alive? or what am I most passionate about?”


The place those two things intersect is where we should find a place to serve.

(ie, if the homeless breaks your heart, and you feel “alive” when working with your hand, go volunteer to build a home)


Complete at least one service project, volunteer, etc with an organization this summer.
