Volunteering is a way you can use your special talents to help other people. You can learn a lot and gain job experience, too. You might volunteer at a church, city hall, a local hospital or nursing home. It’s easy to get involved. Contact a teacher or counselor about your school’s community service activities. Check your local newspaper for volunteer opportunities. Call one of the agencies listed in this directory and ask to talk with someone about volunteer opportunities. Synergy’s Teen Youth Leadership program offers a unique opportunity for teens to volunteer, learn leadership skills and have fun together. For more information, call Synergy at (816) 777-0356.
