There are not always enough jobs to go around for today's teens. But volunteer opportunities abound and offer rich experiences that look great on job resumes and college applications.
The Greensboro Science Center's (GSC) award-winning volunteer program takes on teens who are willing to donate their time for various reasons, including having fun, learning about science, earning Service Learning hours and giving back to the community.
Here is what area teens have to say about GSC's program:
"Volunteering for me is greatly enjoyable because every day I learn something new… I greatly enjoy teaching other people interesting things about our animals that none of them ever knew." ~Daniel Amparo, 17
"Giving my time to the Science Center not only allows me to interact and educate visitors and citizens of the community, but permits me to share a passion that I have for the animals that are adored and loved by many." ~Lexi John, 17
"It's an amazing experience, one you definitely won't regret. It's easy to get nervous or feel like you won't do well here, but it truly is a fantastic place and we could always use one more bright teen as part of the volunteer family." ~Savannah McCracken, 14
Teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 who are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities at GSC are invited to attend GSC's Summer Teen Volunteer Fair, planned for tonight. Interested teens can drop in any time during the event to meet current volunteers and learn more about the Summer Teen Volunteer Program.
