About Us

"It is a curious fact that when you get sick you want an uncommon doctor; if your car breaks down you want an uncommonly good mechanic; when we get into war we want dreadfully an uncommon admiral and an uncommon general. I have never met a father and mother who did not want their children to grow up to be uncommon men and women. May it always be so. For the future of America rests not in mediocrity, but in the constant renewel of leadership in every phase of our national life."

....................................................Herbert Hoover, in his speech "The Uncommon Man"

How we got started

This website came about as a project for the Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award. The goal of the scholarship is to create a project that personifies Herbert Hoover's idea of the Uncommon Man, and embraces his ideals.

This is me, Mariah Becker. I am 19 years old and a student at the University of Iowa.

My project

I chose to create this website as my project in order to get the word out about organizations that need volunteers, and to help youth who want to volunteer get connected with these organizations.
