Boston (PRWEB) January 14, 2013
Many middle and high school students are required to complete up to 40 hours of service work to graduate -- and taking action in their community can also boost their competitive edge in the college application process. In addition, volunteering as a teenager helps students gain benefits ranging from independence and increased self-esteem to also acquiring critical job skills. However many students have a hard time finding opportunities to "give back" if under 18 that match their schedules and interests.
TeenLife's 6th annual TeenLife LIVE! Community Service Fair & Expo at The Mall at Chestnut Hill on February10th from 12 to 4 p.m. will connect more than 1,200+ students, parents, and teachers with 50 local non-profits in Greater Boston that specifically take teens. Also present, will be programs offered by Sponsors for college-bound teens.
“Teens who volunteer learn experientially. They discover where their passions lie while undertaking meaningful work. These experiences help them make more informed choices about college and career options as well as instill a lifelong interest in giving back," says Marie Schwartz, president and founder of TeenLife.
