Benefits of being involved in community activities and volunteering
Jump to content. The ages from 15 to 18 are an exciting time of life. But these years can be challenging for teens and their parents. Emotions can change quickly as teens learn to deal with school, their friends, and adult expectations. Teen self-esteem is affected by success in school, sports, and friendships. Teens tend to compare themselves with others, and they might form false ideas about their body image. The influence of TV, magazines, and the Internet can add to a teen's poor body image. For parents, the teen years are a time to get to know their teenager.
Your child might be interested in online civic or community activities — for example, an online campaign to save local parkland. Online community involvement can motivate teenagers to get involved in face-to-face community activities. Any involvement is good! When teenagers get involved in community activities and volunteering, they get many personal rewards and feelings of achievement.
