Teens are encouraged to carve some time out of their spring break to volunteer through Youth Days of Caring, Mar. 14-18. The United Way has 962 volunteer positions available at projects all over the area — everything from crafting with kids and light office work to helping with horses. While supplies last, participants will receive a free T-shirt when they sign up (while supplies last). It’s all part of United Way’s 23rd annual Youth Days of Caring for middle school and high school students.
Students register for volunteer projects on a first-come-first-served basis. The minimum age to participate is 12, but it depends on the project. Registration is online at www.unitedwayplains.org/springbreak. Those without computer access can call 2-1-1. Sign-up ends March 8th.
