»  ServiceSpace is an all volunteer-run organization that leverages technology to inspire greater volunteerism. It's a space to explore one’s own relationship with service and one’s interconnection with the rest of the world. It allows inherent generosity to blossom into small acts of service for the surrounding community and to learn how outer change is closely tied to one’s own inner transformation. By changing oneself one can change the world.
