May Power of Choice Parent Information

We can make a difference

Volunteering increases self-esteem and gives adolescents the opportunity to learn, practice and demonstrate responsibility and empathy. Adolescents who volunteer are less likely to engage in risky behavior. Use this month’s Parents Use Your Power newsletter Use the list of Volunteer Opportunities for Youth and Families to help your adolescent find the right volunteer opportunities for them.


Family Volunteer Project

Use this month’s PowerTalk activity to help your family begin to talk about places you might want to volunteer.
