Middle school is the perfect time to get involved in your community.  Volunteer some of your free time, after you finish homework and any sports your are involved with, at a local non profit organization.  We have listed a few ideas for you below.  However, please make sure that your parent/guardian go with you and visit the location you will volunteer at and speak to a supervisor regarding your volunteer time.  Some organizations have an age limit for their volunteers, don't be afraid to call for information.  You can also make an appointment with your school counselor to talk about your volunteering options.

  • Talk to your local chapter of the Make a Wish Foundation
  • Animal Shelter
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Volunteer at a place that may interest you as a career

Please remember to always call ahead of time and schedule an appointment for you and your parent/guardian and visit the location and speak to the people together.
