Encourage kids of different ages to do volunteer work that is matched to their passion and talents. That'll ensure they'll be happy doing the work, will be committed to doing the work over time and will be of great service to the cause they are supporting. Ask them, "What do you care about?" "What are you good at?" "Whom do you want to help?" Then explore the best match at Networkforgood.org
. Through the site's partnership with VolunteerMatch, kids can search for opportunities in their communities by area of interest and type of volunteer kids, teens, etc.
