Do something interesting and have some fun this summer!
Our current economy has made it hard for teens to find summer jobs. Adults are getting positions traditionally filled by college student’s home for the summer, so college students are filling roles traditionally filled by high school students.
But -- there is a solution! Try volunteering! Volunteering can give you some practical experience. You can gain new skills, build your work experience and enhance your resume. Community service activities are an important component for many schools and colleges. And volunteering helps you develop a good work ethic.
There are lots of volunteer jobs available this summer. Check the list the Volunteer Center has put together. You can also utilize our online database at www.bergenvolunteers.org. Click the Bergen Volunteens button, and then volunteer opportunities.
So -- Volunteer! The rewards can be valuable, and what else are you going to do all summer?
