Too young to work? No jobs available? Social? Love engineering? Three words: community service hours. Then this is your best option. Volunteering at a summer camp is a great way to stay active while cranking out those service hours.
Our Peer mentoring program enables eighth and ninth graders to participate in our summer camps program in a completely new way. It’s still a week of creativity and hands on fun, but now there is leadership training and goal-setting skills built in. Peer mentoring is a great way to discover a new interest, explore a possible career, build skills for a job that pays, develop references for work and school applications, make a difference in your community, and make friends and have fun.
