One of the truly neat things about volunteering is that is allows people to make a contribution to the world in which they live. With formal volunteering this is only true, of course, to the extent that organizations allow people to volunteer, thus recognizing that ability to contribute. This issue’s Along the Web focuses on recognizing the ability to contribute of volunteers with disabilities, a group which has not always enjoyed full access to volunteer opportunities, but which is now receiving much fuller attention. We’ll look at handbooks, manuals and articles as well as organizations that are attempting to facilitate increased involvement.
