This post is in partnership with Pepsi Refresh Project

If you've lived in the same place for awhile, you might think that you've already seen and done all the things that your community has to offer. Maybe you've been to every local school fair and town hall meeting, but how about starting your own philosophy salon, creating a community-supported garden and eating locally, finding meet-up groups, organizing a successful block party, or starting your own neighborhood timebank?

There are more opportunities than ever to connect and give back to your neighborhood. Check out the GOOD Guide to Your Community for stories and new ways to find all the things that make your community unique!
