Support and Advice from TNPC's Parenting Experts

Many kids in their early teens who wish to become actively involved in some summer activities, but yet are too young for regular employment have other options available.
Many places, like the parks and public zoos, will not use young volunteers because of insurance risks, but The Humane Society is often a viable option. They usually need help of various kinds and may need someone who has time to give potential pets some TLC.
Medical centers, hospitals, or nursing homes can also be tried for volunteer possibilities. Some patients never have visitors and just need someone to talk to.
Child care centers or a family day care homes can be good places to volunteer for children with limited experience or skills. Age should pose no problem in these settings and there are many things they can do. In addition, kids involved in this setting will learn a great deal about child development and management.
