Here is the Document that authorizes VOLUNTEER work

13th Amendment:

    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[2]

The 13th Amendment not only made INvoluntary Servitude unconstitutional, it also established, as a byproduct, that VOLUNTARY servitude IS Constitutional!!

    It is wrong to hold Americans hostage to budget bargaining
    and partisan charade; Meals on Wheel clients, nursing-home
    residents. Head Start youngsters, vendors waiting to be paid,
    citizens wanting to visit national parks or to travel
    overseas, Americans depending on unemployment assistance or
    water-quality monitoring--not to mention 760,000 unpaid
    federal workers.
