With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to think about ways in which young people and their families can serve their communities during the break. Service and volunteerism gives youth an identity and purpose and helps them to develop important skills in critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. Consider ways your organization can reach out to youth and families this summer and look for opportunities you might have in which youth and families might serve together.
