An Introduction to the World of Volunteering

ISBN: 978-0-7660-3440-2
Back-to-school time is a great time to talk to teens about volunteering. Many schools now require a certain number of volunteer hours to graduate, others strongly encourage it by offering a wide variety of after-school programs that students can participate in. Whether young adults volunteer through their school or another organization, they are very likely to benefit from the experience. Volunteering can be very rewarding and in some cases it may help students decide what they want to do later in life.

Enslow's new title, Volunteering: A How-to Guide, offers inspiring true stories of teens who volunteer. And while these teens may already know what issues they are passionate about, the choice is not always obvious.

Included in this book is a quick quiz students can take to help them figure out what issues they may like to help with. There is also a great list of volunteer and services resources provided making it easy for teens to start volunteering.
