Summary "One of those benefits is that volunteers make peoples' lives better. And a second benefit is self-directed: people who help others help themselves. Volunteers feel personal satisfaction when they see how their efforts are making the world a better place. This is a powerful tool for reducing stress, combating depression, and providing a sense of purpose. Volunteer work can be challenging but those who tackle problems or aid strangers meet like-minded people of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds. This reduces feelings of loneliness. It can also help you widen your social circle beyond you immediate family while forming bonds that last a lifetime"-- Provided by publisher.
Volunteering helps teens sharpen their social skills, build self-esteem, gain real-world experience, meet mentors, and obtain letters of recommendation for college applications. Kallen show the many ways teens are making-- and can make-- a difference in the world. He provides numerous project ideas, as well as advice and insight from a wide array of teen volunteers. -- adapted from back cover
