Volunteering

Through volunteering your time and talent you can give back to your community which has been good to you. You can also meet the needs of the community and serve people in need. Many people think the best aspect of volunteering is the experience and benefit you as an individual.

For high school students, some are calling this “service learning” and an opportunity to learn life lessons. You will find you can explore potential careers, personal interests, develop marketable skills, enhance your resume, build confidence, experience and make new friends through helping others.
