Some volunteer opportunities for high school students include distributing food at a soup kitchen and reading to or spending time with the elderly. Other volunteer ideas for high schoolers include running in a charity marathon or participating in a clean up of a public space.
High schoolers with specific skill sets, such as art, technology or design, can also volunteer their skills to an existing charity organization that needs them. High schoolers who know how to sew or knit can also make blankets or warm clothes for people in need. Additionally, many large volunteer organizations, such as the Red Cross, also have volunteer opportunities specifically tailored for young people.
