Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to get involved. It can help you discover your passions and talents as well as help you gain valuable experience for the future, whether college, scholarships or employment. 

Here are some hints and contacts to get started.

You can go to www.volunteerphoenix.org to find volunteer organizations by category such as Animals/Wildlife, Environment, Community Services, Cultural/Entertainment, Disability, etc. The CIty of Scottsdale Youth Corp  helps students get involved with variety of organization that can help you pick the best fit for your passions and talents when volunteering.

Another good site is Volunteer Match where you can search by city, zip code and keyword at www.volunteermatch.org.

Lastly, Community Information and Referral is a non-profit organization with an online directory at www.cir.org Depending on a student's interest area, there is probably an organization that could match up and could use some help. A student will benefit most from community service when they have a passion or interest in that area.
