While I was combing through tweets today, I discovered on the Wyman Center site an encouraging post by a young woman, Simone Bernstein, introducing me
to “Volunteen Nations”. It is a great website that helps young people find ways to volunteer and give back to their community.
I went to the site to see how it worked. I pretended to be 17 and filled out the “Find a Volunteer Match” and behold I found a half dozen places that needed youth volunteers in my interest area! It is a colorful site with resources for teen volunteers, blogs, and information.
What a wonderful resource for teens that are looking for constructive and learning filled ways to fill their free time. They will be giving back, feeling good about themselves, and using their extra time for constructive purposes.
I think this is a great way to help teens stay in school and value education as they work along side adults who have purpose and meaning in their lives.
Take a look at the article Simone wrote and the Volunteen Nation website. It really inspired my day – I am off to find an adult volunteer site!
