  • He can volunteer at a local soup kitchen,most hospitals could use volunteers as well, you can always call and find out. Then again you could ask the school guidance councellor for the information on where he can volunteer.

  • Volunteer work is usually available among non-profit organizations and agencies, such as the American Red Cross, Nursing Homes, Boys and Girls Clubs/Community Centers, Houses of Worship, Soup Kitchens and Food Banks, and Homeless Shelters for starters.

    Churches often have lists of charities they support and I'm sure would put you or your child in contact with groups that need extra hands!

  • My daughter volunteers at the afterschool program she attended (two days a week, after school). See if the Youth Volunteer Core is active in your area “Since 1987 YVC has been engaging 11-18 year olds in structured, supervised service learning projects in and out of school.” .

  • my 13 y/o daughter and I volunteer for a program called Communites In Schools - each summer we help sort school supplies, deliver school back packs. . . .
    I know that there are web sites to help find a volunteer opportunity that meets your needs.
