I offer my talents to a high school academy locally. This is a school within a public school with a special focus and curriculum and often are provided insufficient funding. I photograph the senior class in both individual and group portraits as the families have limited resources to afford these types of services on their own. I am blessed to participate every year.

Love it.

I'm setting up with my wife's high school to do the same.
Many students are from low income, single family and immigration situations.

Got some shots of youth surrounding an alter recently. Helping with a campaign that's fighting a massive budget slash to youth/Christian formation.

I shoot for free for organisations helping homeless and people in poor situations here in Gothenburg, Sweden from time to time when they want/need photography assistance.

I have done some volunteering with a local animal therapy group that sends an animal (usually a dog) and their owner into various settings. Usually the team commits for 6-9 months. I spent a couple of days with one team that worked with 2 young boys with some learning/behavioral issues. Here are some of the shots.

One of the shots is now on the HABIC website, I gave the boys each an 8x10 of them and the dog, and I gave their speech therapy teacher a CD of all the shots and that was used in a school program. Very fun and very rewarding--the boys loved the attention!

Another volunteer gig was with the local humane society. I was one of the photographers for their annual running race (with dogs!) They have a flickr stream with the photos and they use them for their newsletters and other promotional stuff. Here is that event:

And I am always looking for more opportunities--the rewards are just so great :)

I was inspired by this thread. Volunteered at my local humane society to photograph some cats for adoption websites.

I'm one of many photographers who participate in a nation wide project called "Flashes Of Hope." We spend a half-day at a local children's hospital doing individual and family portraits for kids with cancer. It's emotionally difficult for the photographers but greatly appreciated by the families. Here are a couple of the kids I've photographed. If you're interested, check here to see if they are active in your area:
