Volunteering if Great

Teen Talk


Volunteering is a great way to support your community. Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield and surrounding areas have plenty of volunteer opportunities. Now is the perfect time to volunteer because school is about to end and although volunteer hours are not required at various schools anymore, this is a good way to learn new skills and build your resume.  


There are several organizations with volunteer opportunities for teens on Post.  For instance, you can volunteer with Army Community Service, American Red Cross, Library, WINN Hospital, and many more.  You can volunteer at the local Manna House, animal shelter, or just pick up trash around your local park or neighborhood. 

By volunteering this shows future employers that you are community oriented. Not only that, it gives you experience. Many of us haven’t had jobs before so it makes it harder to get hired. This is an excellent way to fill your resume until you actually have opportunity to put work experience on your resume. 


Volunteering also helps raise confidence and allows you to talk to different people throughout the community. It’s a good outlet in meeting different people who play different roles throughout your area. There are also many places on post you can help out to make your community better. If you see trash lying around, pick it up. You never realize how important and what a different it makes to your living environment.
