Volunteering can be a great way to learn about the world, meet new people and help make a difference in your neighborhood and at your school. Find out more about helping out in your community and the top 10 ways to volunteer!

No.10: The New Kid

A new school can be scary, be kind and show the new kids around!A new school can be scary, be kind and show the new kids around!
 

Offer to get involved with helping new kids at your school by showing them the ropes. Being at a new school can be scary and teachers and students alike will appreciate the effort (especially the new kids!)

No.9:  Create A Club

You might be surprised how many kids will be on board if you start a clubYou might be surprised how many kids will be on board if you start a club
 

If there’s an issue or problem you’re passionate about - like bullying, hunger, homelessness or recycling – why not create a club at your school to raise awareness about the issue and band together to make a difference.

No.8: Clothing Drive

Organize a clothing drive and get everyone involved in clearing out their closets~Organize a clothing drive and get everyone involved in clearing out their closets~
 

We all have more things than we truly need, encourage your friends, family and classmates to do some spring cleaning in their closets by arranging a clothing drive or simply collecting clothing to donate to an organization with thrift stores like the Salvation Army or the SPCA!

No.7: Seniors Star

If you love people, lend your time to a home for seniorsIf you love people, lend your time to a home for seniors
 

If you love working with people, why not approach a Seniors facility about spending time with their members. You can play games, read with them, go for walks or simply talk, every little bit helps when it comes to staying alert in your old age.

No.6: Money Matters

Collect money for a charityCollect money for a charity
 

Almost every charity organization out there has one thing in common –they need money! Just a few pennies can help buy essentials for someone homeless, or help buy food and water for a child in a developing nation. Start a collection box at your school for the charity of your choice.

No.5:  Tutor Time

If your IQ is off the charts, why not give other students a piece of  your mind - by tutoring!If your IQ is off the charts, why not give other students a piece of your mind - by tutoring!
 

Maybe you’re a whiz at math or English, but you see a classmate or friend struggling and wish you could help them. Guess what? You can! Tell your school or class that you are available as a tutor and donate your time. The best part is, sometimes explaining it to someone else can help you study and learn even better.

No.4: Plant Pro

If you have a green thumb, beautifying your neighborhood or schoolgrounds can be as easy and cheap as grabbing a shovel and throwing down some seeds. If you love gardening and nature, start a garden for everyone to enjoy!

No.3: Trees not Trash

Trees not trash! Get rid of litter in your communityTrees not trash! Get rid of litter in your community
 

Litter bugs can make public places, like parks and playgrounds, unpleasant for everyone. Lead by example by volunteering to pick up litter in your neighborhood.

No.2: Awesome with Animals

Contact your local animal shelter to find out about fostering a furry friendContact your local animal shelter to find out about fostering a furry friend
 

Get up close and personal with your favorite furry friends by volunteering at your local animal shelter. If your parents allow it you can foster animals like kittens and puppies til they find their “forever” homes, or you can offer to feed, clean and walk the animals at the shelter.

No.1: Help the Homeless
