Youth Service Resources
Children for Children's service resources enable youth, families, educators and community based organizations to focus on helping others and gain personal skills, including responsibility and leadership skills, critical thinking and problem solving skills, self-respect, character development and self-discipline. Young volunteers also find more motivation and engagement in studies, greater tolerance for diversity and broader perspectives. Studies suggest that even academic performance can improve across the socioeconomic spectrum.
