Be a Mentor
Provide support to children in your community by being a positive role model.
You can volunteer in classrooms at local schools and libraries or you can get involved with after school programs. Possibilities include neighborhood youth clubs, local sports teams, and other related programs.
Service and caring for others are important values to teach children.
Find volunteer opportunities in your community that you can involve your children in. You can run a supply drive for a homeless shelter and have your children help with supply pick-ups and deliveries. You can also take children to visit the elderly at local retirement homes, singing songs and playing games to provide company. Ask your children for suggestions of what they’d like to do and be open to possibilities.
