Student Guide to Community Service

This past week’s featured publication of the week from the Federal Citizen Information Center focused on ideas and information to aid young people in helping to make their community a better place to live: Catch the Spirit: A Student’s Guide to Community Service is a seven page brochure that offers answers to the questions “Why Volunteer?”, “What’s Right for Me?”, and “What Can a Volunteer Do?”, along with “Do’s and Don’ts of Successful Volunteering”, “Local Resources for Volunteer Ideas”, and a listing of “National Organizations with Information for Young Volunteers.”

Community volunteering is an excellent way to make a difference, to develop new skills, to explore a career, to prepare for college, and to have fun working with friends while doing something positive that helps your community while making you feel good about yourself.

If you need more information about community volunteer work – or if you’d like to volunteer – stop by the Haysville Community Library and “Catch the Spirit.”
