High School Volunteers


Why would I want to include High School students in my organizations volunteer activities? You will need to determine for your own setting and your own program the specific answer to this question. However, utilizing younger volunteers will have the following advantages:

1. Younger volunteers' boundless enthusiasm and energy is amazing. Often, younger volunteers are a handful BECAUSE they have the energy to run circles around us older folk. OUR challenge, then, is to channel that energy and enthusiasm to benefit our organization.

2. It provides an opportunity to shape the next generation of leaders. This is your next generation of adult volunteers, decision makers, and supporters.

3. Younger volunteers provide a different perspective from adult volunteers. While they lack the experience of adult volunteers, this enables younger volunteers to stay away from mind sets like, "but, we have always done it this way". How refreshing!

4. Younger volunteers possess open minds, ready to absorb new information and ideas.

5. Younger people's minds are relatively flexible. They hold fewer preconceptions of the world, are able to accept change easily, and are ready to grow given the opportunity.
