Volunteer


Volunteering is a great way for your child to learn more about herself and the direction she wants her life to take. She can volunteer locally, or get involved in a national program that gives her a chance to travel the country. Volunteering can help your child learn new skills, make connections, and focus her energy on a cause that interests her.

AmeriCorp is a national program that allows over 75,000 individuals to volunteer each year. To learn more about their program and how to apply, visit their website at http://www.americorps.gov/. Additionally, the Peace Corps offers great volunteering opportunities as well. For more information, visit the Peace Corps website.
