Community service is a countless way for middle and high school students to build their resumes, discover new interests and practice good employment skills. Middle and high school students can find all kinds of volunteer opportunities, some during the school year, others during the summer. There are volunteer initiatives focused in all kinds of areas:
- The environment;
- Health care;
- Sports and coaching;
- English as a Second Language;
- Volunteer with children or elders;
- Animal protection;
- Helping nonprofits with social media or technology.
Some of these are paid / unpaid internships, opportunities for employment, academic programs at local institutions or to conclude volunteer positions (to increase experience and make a positive contribution) in and around in your area.
