What is a good cause for youth to get involved in?

I would like to get involved with a charity/cause but I don't really have any passions/in depth knowledge to be attracted to a particular cause. However, I am well aware of animal welfare, climate change (all those things). Where should I start?

Luckily you don't have to choose just one thing. And over the course of your lifetime you might choose to expand to have as many different experiences as possible. You may develop a preference for a particular cause but you don't have to. Some people just "give back" without ever being immersed in the cause. It doesn't make the help any less valuable!

If you're into environmental issues, try joining http://www.sierraclub.org/diversity/ and allow the knowledge and experiences you gain to direct your volunteer interests.

Click your state on the map to find opportunities for youth http://www.volunteer.gov/Gov/

Your city or county may have beautification programs or park clean up programs for youth. Check their website for youth programs or guidelines.

Animals - Some age restrictions apply but it's always possible to do a fundraiser. First check out the website for shelter for the guidelines. The easiest fundraiser is to call everyone you know, family and friends asking them to donate an item from the shelter's "wish list" on a day that you and the shelter decide. You can also have people drop the items off at your house so that you can take them on the day. Items are typically paper towels, bleach, hand sanitizer, dry food, wet food, cat liter, clean rags, toilet paper, copy paper, etc. Most items cost from less than $1 to $7 so even in these economic hard times people can usually give at least one item. Be sure to take a picture of yourself with all the items at the shelter (in front of it usually makes a great shot) so that you can share it with your donors to show the success and have it for your portfolio of charity work. Ask the shelter to provide you with a letter confirming your volunteer fundraising for your records, too, in case you need verification for school, college or jobs.

Your local zoo may have a youth program. Most do. Again, its website will have the information under the volunteer section.

Check out the work Green Peace does http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/

Consider volunteering as a summer camp counselor because it provides you an opportunity to influence and encourage young people to explore the interests that you have in the environment and with animals.

Working with people
United Way First Call For Help http://www.unitedway.org (Canada http://www.unitedway.ca ) lists community resources for those in need and volunteer opportunities in each community for ages 13+.

Habitat For Humanity- has youth programs. I didn't volunteer with them until after age 18 but I got to help with the landscaping, not just building/painting house. http://www.habitat.org/youthprograms/

Do Something http://www.dosomething.org/

The journey of a lifetime begins with one step.

Best to you!
