About Serve for Good



I’m Claire Furse, and I created ServeforGood.org because I understand that it can be hard for teens to find volunteer opportunities. Most middle and high school students are interested in community service, but many organizations require volunteers to be 18, or they only offer projects during the school day, when students aren’t available.  Serve for Good includes more than 130 nonprofits in the Houston area that have interesting projects that students can do. I hope this website will help you and other teens find organizations that you are passionate about!

Want to share your experience at one of the charities?

I’d love to hear about your volunteering experiences. Please leave a review using the “add a review” option on each charity’s page, so that potential volunteers can be better informed. 

If you don’t want the review to be public, you can email claire.furse@tufts.edu. I would also be very happy to include any photos of your volunteer experience that you want to share. 

Have a suggestion for another charity? 

If you know of a charity that is looking for teen volunteers, please let me know. You can use the comment form or email me.
