20 Fall Internships and Volunteer Opportunities for Teens


There are several excellent ways for teens and high school students to get involved in their community this fall that will not only qualify as community service hours (mandatory in some schools)  but also look great on a future resume. Make sure that your teen has secured the proper working papers, which can usually be obtained at their school, as well as your written consent before applying to some positions. See below for links to some great local opportunities for teens.
