Community-Based Organizations

Youth are integral to their local communities, help shape its culture, and have extensive social connections. Just as young people experience a community's problems firsthand, they are often on the front lines of activism and other efforts to help address them. Create volunteer opportunities to keep the youth in your community engaged! Good dates to consider are Spring Break, April 20-28.
