A better world is possible! Let’s start in our community.
Do you like helping others? You can make a difference in your community and world!!! Ask your parents or at your school how you can do it : )
Research indicates that people are much more likely to volunteer
throughout their lifetimes if they volunteer as a child. This likelihood increases when children volunteer with their family. If you are looking for opportunities to share time with your family as a volunteer you can check these websites out :
I also encourage you to ask about it in organizations that you already know at your community, they probably have some program!
Schools are a great place to introduce children to philanthropy education. There are some nonprofit organizations that teach schools and teachers how to work on this issue in order to make it meaningful and engaging for the students. A Legacy of Giving is one of these great organizations and it works in Austin with more than 30 schools. Its mission is to empower children and youth through philanthropy education to become more engaged in improving their communities and world.
