Benefits for students to Volunteer:

Gaining New Skills

  • With each new volunteer activity comes training. These skills provide building blocks for future success.

Adding to the Resume

  • Commitment to community volunteer work overtime shows that a teen is willing to work for something without monetary compensation--much like a college internship, apprenticeship or job shadow experience--which may be a requirement of college programs.

Giving Time

  • One of the most selfless acts anyone can do is donate their time and talents. Teens who are busy with after-school sports or work and still make time to volunteer on evenings or weekends show outstanding character and resolve to make a difference.

Showing Responsibility

  • Just like going to a job, committing to a volunteer position shows responsibility. Teens working on becoming more reliable should get involved in volunteer programs relating to their hobbies to naturally build responsibility.

Earning Credits

  • Some high schools mandate a specific number of community volunteer work hours before a student is eligible for graduation. Many volunteer opportunities can translate to high school or college credits. Community service scholarships are one of the more common scholarship categories out there. In fact, there are more community service scholarships available to high school students looking for funding to help pay for that first year on campus. If you have a history of volunteerism, make sure you consider that in both your scholarship search and application process.
