Although volunteering is not exactly related to tutoring or academic success, I strongly believe that volunteering with your children or teens can provide some very important life lessons and lessons about appreciation. There is no better time than the holiday time to check out some great volunteer opportunities in our community. One website that I have consistently used and is very easy to use is called http://www.laworks.com.
You can search by zip code and also by dates of the opportunities. You do not have to volunteer on a consistent basis but can sign up for events that interest you. Hope this site is helpful and that you have a wonderful holiday season.
