Helping Teens Volunteer in Their Community


 
Family & Parenting
Kids are busy nowadays. Between sports leagues, homework, tech disruptions and socializing, it can be hard to squeeze in volunteerism but social services are essential to a properly-rounded education. Volunteerism benefits everyone. People who help others benefit nearly just as much as the audience or individual they assist. The beneficiary receives the gift of effort and time. Studies discover that student volunteers are better involved in school, more attached to their community and also have enhanced social and private skills.(1) Teen volunteerism continues to be rising because the mid-1980's and particularly because the tragic events of 9/11. Reports indicate that development in teen volunteerism continues to be driven mostly by schools. In 1999, 83 percent of high schools organized community service opportunities.(2) In 1985, those numbers hovered at 27 percent. More schools are requiring social service projects for graduation. And, for college students around the college track, volunteer work could make the main difference between being accepted or rejected by their preferred schools. Even students not considering college will discover that volunteerism opens doors for jobs. Methods for getting Teens Began in Volunteering:

Begin small - Don't attempt to create a house. Start with an easy planter box designed for a school.

Stay local - Review your own neighborhood for inspiration. Does an elderly neighbor need her fence painted?

Enroll in a Service Group - It can be hard to discover projects by yourself so enroll in a service group. Places to start include: learnandserve.gov, volunteermatch.org, youthserviceamerica.org. School counselors are a good resource for ideas. In case your school lacks a community service club, then start one!

Inquire in a Local Church - Churches of each and every denomination are essential links locally as well as need help with projects.

Satisfy the Beneficiaries - Serving food in a local food closet or distributing coats in the shelter is a simple method of getting started and can create a big impression on teens.

Causes of Inspiration:

Food Banks - Need food collections, assist with pick-ups and distribution.

Ronald McDonald House - Need volunteers for family activities, kitchen help, and general staffing duties.

Area Hospitals - Great volunteer opportunities but volunteers must undergo medical screenings and volunteer training.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation -Local JDRF has chapters that require teen volunteers to assist educate the neighborhood and coordinate school walks.

Special Olympics - Wide variety of opportunities. Could be especially rewarding for athletes.

Animal Shelters - Shelters will be in just about any community and all of rely heavily on volunteers.

Libraries - Libraries will be in most communities. Libraries need assistance with books, with children's programs as well as in community programs.

Senior Centers and Senior Housing - Activity leaders or just for visiting, teenagers bring vitality as well as into senior facilities. Their presence is definitely appreciated. Find Seniors facilities in each and every community.

Habitat for Humanity - Habitat for Humanity has age-specific programs to ensure that volunteers of every age group will help provide housing to needy families.

Keep a record! Teens can track their hours with an online tracking system or on the simple spreadsheet. Take photos of projects both before and after completion to chronicle the progress. Obtain a letter from your beneficiary. To help keep the momentum going, set a date for completing the following project the moment the first is completed.
