http://www.housingworks.org. This website I thought was good because of how it is working on building homes for the homeless in poor countries and for poor people in wealthy countries.
I like this website just for it's simplicity and the organization. http://www.vittana.org

Animal shelters rely on a lot of volunteers to keep the animals clean and healthy so they can be adopted. Students can volunteer at a shelter one day per week for a semester. It is important that the teachers explain that this service project is not about just holding animals. Cages have to be cleaned out and animal waste has to be removed. It can be sad to see animals waiting a long time to be adopted and to view some animals that have suffered abuse. Still, the benefits to both animal shelters and students can outweigh the negatives.
If your school is within driving distance to a beach, consider organizing a beach clean-up service project. Kids agree to bring lots of trash bags and pick up all of the items littered on the beach. If your school or home isn't near a beach, organize a park clean-up or other type of community cleanup day. This will give children a lesson on the effects of littering so they don't do it. They also may gain appreciation for the land they are using and for other people in the community who also use that land.
Students can visit a local recycling plant and learn about recycling and why it is so important. They can be taught the proper items to recycle, as well as which items must go in the regular garbage. They can then take this information and create a pamphlet that students can pass out in the community. While they are handing out pamphlets, students can offer to answer any questions about recycling that recipients might have. They can pass out pamphlets by going door to door with an adults or by getting permission to stand outside a local store.
