KIRKUS REVIEW

You can be like Kay, Jackie, Kevin, Carol, and thousands of others who help the mentally retarded"" . . . or assist in the park department because ""when you work with boys who turn out for sports you feel as though you're producing something"" . . . or join ""political"" organizations like the Red Cross and Salvation Army ""so you can do something constructive about today's issues"" . . . or interview applicants for welfare (even though ""Mary's face radiates friendliness and concern,"" is this a job for a volunteer?) . . . or join ""the crusade of the '70's"" by speaking out against drugs, referring the pot smoker at your lunch table to a center for ""teens who have been hooked on drugs."" But for job descriptions, lists of organizations, or any useful information, you'll have to look elsewhere -- say in the Guide to Volunteer Services.
