“Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much.”
My name is Aparna, and I started this website to engage teenagers into the community. Volunteering has been part of who I am, and Helen Keller has said it all about the community in which we live in with a single sentence. When I entered high school, I realized how many kids weren’t pursuing any involvement in the busy life around them.
So I took up the project of getting teenagers to realize the opportunities around them by making this my Gold Award and putting all of the volunteer opportunities onto one website. Here students have direct access to the volunteer links and descriptions to each of the organizations provided.
Although many schools also provide volunteer opportunities, many of them only last a few hours. Here all volunteer opportunities are long term meaning they go on for a season or longer, and have commitments along with requirements to help students grow.
