Why Should Teens Volunteer?

Should I Volunteer Over the Summer?

Summer volunteer programs for teens require dedication and commitment. Simply showing up for an hour isn’t enough to get anything out of the experience for the teen or the organization providing the opportunity. Instead, summer volunteer opportunities provide the teen with a comprehensive work experience he or she can use to build a resume and get reference letters from. Teen summer volunteer programs are a great way for teens to build empathy, compassion, and job skills that future employers will look for. Community service is more than just a way to do something good for the community; they are a way for the teen to do something good for their future.
