At Schoolhouse Supplies, we have seen a lot of youth and family volunteers come through the doors this summer, with our younger volunteers running in age from 5 up to 18 years old.
Getting your family and children involved in the community not only gives you a positive shared experience, it can also provide many positive outcomes:
– Successfully supporting an organization through volunteer activities gives your child a sense of accomplishment
– Learning about the needs of the community helps children to understand and appreciate what they have
– Volunteering on a regular basis can help a child build his/her self confidence and leadership abilities
We have seen and heard so many great responses from youth volunteers that we are introducing dedicated Youth Volunteer Days:
Dedicated dates for families to volunteer with activities tailored to the youngest volunteers including: counting, sorting and stocking supplies.
Note: All youth must be accompanied by an adult.
