Did you ever think you could get paid for volunteering?
With Operation Second Wind you can; with a minimum 320 hour a year commitment (part-time) you could receive a "living allowance stipend" plus an education award at the end of your service to be use toward student loans or continuing education for doing good work in the community, if you are 55 or older you can even assign the education award to a direct decedent.
