Where you can give back

Summer is approaching and with the extra free time, students are hoping to earn more silver cord hours. Find out below some places where you can give back over break.

Teenagers are often portrayed as self-obsessed and unconcerned with the world around them. After all, it is easy to ignore others in the context of high-octane day-to-day school life. However, summer break is an opportunity to move past the distractions of daily life and focus on bettering oneself. One of the best ways to reach out and grow as a person is through volunteering, but you should get involved before it’s too late.
