Hi everyone! I'm a web developer with a passion for educational reform, developmental psychology, worldview transformation, and environmental sustainability. I'll have some time freed up in the near future and I'd like to find some meaningful project(s) to contribute to. Of course there's lots of companies and web shops looking for programming talent, but I'm most interested in small public-benefit projects that have a plan for improving society, will need web development expertise, and (like so many startups and nonprofits) will have trouble finding my kind of expertise because the industry demand is so high.

Where should I be looking to find this kind of project? The standard searches and job boards are so crowded with more generic job offers (gaming, marketing, business analytics, finance, etc.) that I'm finding it hard to zoom in on projects that I'll feel are making some deeper, more valuable impact on society. Thanks in advance for any suggestions & thoughts!
