I pick up trash everywhere I go, I'll be seeding blighted neighborhoods with perennial flowers and I continue to regularly volunteer my time and funds to spay/neuter, vaccinate and "fix up" feral cats with Community Cats of Maryland. Giving back isn't just for humanitarian causes, it can be in any way, shape or form. Service work doesn't have to be formal in nature. Do what you enjoy doing and you'll keep doing it throught your life without burnout.

In February, and with a committee of 8 people, I expect to begin a 10 week After School Program on civic engagement with elementary and middle school age students at the McKim Community Association. This has been two years in the making!
