楼主 (北美华人网)
身边有的孩子一个暑假,80小时,100小时的做,我家孩子不喜欢。我们十年级总共才做了十个小时。请问过来人,这个很重要吗?需要多少个小时?我们这里高中以前需要一定的hours才能毕业,今年由于疫情,不要求了。

学校有规定做满多少小时的, mm查一下你们的学校。 疫情期间的确变了不少, 有很多online 的志愿机会, 像给小朋友读书,教学习,还有捐玩具食物等机会, 都不需要in person, mm可以让孩子考虑考虑。

可以挑娃们本身已经参与的活动做 volunteer,比如做体育啊乐队啊的助教,做 speech 啊 robotics 的 judge 或者 event organizer.
这些活动参与和 volunteer 之间有很多 overlap,比较省时间。

BEST VIRTUAL VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS April is Volunteer Month! Volunteering not only adds value to your resume and college application, but contributing to your community also stimulates your personal and professional growth and allows you to make a difference.  Since the pandemic has moved so much of life digitally, organizations have found ways to engage volunteers using virtual methods as well. With virtual volunteering opportunities, you can contribute to your community and the world at large from the comfort and safety of your home!  Take a look at the following virtual volunteering opportunities for high school students. This list provides a variety of options for students based on a multitude of different interests and skills. Humane Society Though students can’t volunteer in person to work with animals safely during the pandemic, they can still help further the Humane Society’s mission by phone banking. Students must be over 16-years-old to volunteer and will place calls to support the Humane Society’s legislative priorities and ballot initiatives. The Trevor Project Students over the age of 18 can volunteer virtually for the Trevor Project to help staff crisis intervention hotlines and provide support to LGBTQ youth, ages 13 to 24. Best Buddies This organization provides an opportunity for students to help with their e-Buddies program, through which volunteers email with a buddy who has intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, at least once every two weeks. Volunteers are matched with buddies based on interest, games, and location. People in the same states are not matched. This is a great way for students to help those with different abilities feel included and make a new friend. Girls Inc. As a social media ambassador for Girls Inc., students can help amplify the organization’s message by creating and sharing social media posts that teach girls how to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers. The goal of these posts is to add to a healthy, educated, and independent upbringing for girls. Even very busy students can spend 5 to 10 minutes a day working on this effort! Be My Eyes This organization pairs student volunteers with blind and low-vision individuals to provide visual assistance through a video app. Students can help folks who have trouble seeing with daily tasks like checking expiration dates, distinguishing between different colors, and reading important instructions. Adopt a Nursing Home Through this Texas Health Care Association project, student volunteers can send letters and online messages to nursing home residents to help keep their spirits high while they can no longer have visitors.  Lifetime Connections Without Walls This organization provides an opportunity for older adults to join classes and activities from the comfort and safety of their homes. Students can virtually volunteer their time by sending reminders about these events or even facilitating sessions. Donate:Code This organization connects students who are willing to donate their coding skills to charities and community groups who need that type of support. Students also have the opportunity to build their skills and portfolios through this volunteer position. Mozilla Mozilla offers another opportunity to students with computer skills to volunteer and help build a better internet. Students can volunteer to help with programming, design, or even testing. Amnesty Decoders This opportunity from an arm of Amnesty International allows students to help identify human rights violations that can become human rights projects using their computers, smart phones, and tablets. Students might find violations like tweets that are abusive to women or even locate vulnerable villages in war-torn regions like Darfur. Teenangels This organization offers an exciting opportunity for students ages 13 to 18 who have an interest in cyber security to help run programs that teach students, parents, and teachers about the safe and responsible use of the internet.  Citizen Scholars This is an opportunity for student history buffs to volunteer for the Smithsonian Institute, which is the largest museum and research complex in the world. Students can virtually assist in transcribing papers of prominent Americans, historic documents, and records from the Smithsonian’s scientific collection to make them more accessible to not only researchers but also the public.  Citizen Archivist This opportunity with the National Archives allows students to help preserve and share public records detailing the story of the United States and its people. Volunteers transcribe, tag, and add comments to these public records to help make them more searchable and accessible. TeensGive This is a fantastic opportunity for students in grades 9 through 12 to tutor other students online without the component of travel that tutoring often requires. TeensGive also focuses on helping students who are behind in school because of disadvantages like former gang membership, homelessness, or inequality. School on Wheels Another teaching-related opportunity, this organization gives students ages 16 to 18 the chance to volunteer to tutor students who are living in shelters, motels, vehicles, group foster homes, and the streets in Southern California. Tutors will work with students ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade. Operation Gratitude This organization gives students who love to write the chance to send thank-you letters to first responders, troops, and veterans to support their efforts and thank them for their service. Project Gutenberg As this organization continues to grow the world’s largest digital library of over 60,000 free books, it needs volunteer proofreaders--a perfect opportunity for students who love to read and write! Bookshare Bookshare’s mission is to make reading more accessible to people who face reading barriers like visual impairments, learning disabilities, dyslexia, and physical disabilities. With this organization, students can volunteer to scan in new books and proofread scanned titles as the collection of over 900,000 titles improves. Tarjimly Students who have second-language skills or are multilingual can volunteer with this app that provides on-demand translation services for immigrants, asylees, and refugees. Translators Without Borders Students who are fluent in two or more languages can also volunteer for Translators Without Borders and translate texts for a variety of international organizations that focus on crisis relief, health, and education.

re. 如果不想特意再增加其他的工作,体育活动的主教,加orchestra排练表演,因为是小孩不付钱也算是volunteer。甚至在教会帮忙带小朋友唱歌服事钢琴都算的。

Volunteer 一定要做,是申请大学的一部分,学校的规定只是最低的,不能拿那个当作目标。一方面要多做,另外最好有固定长期的,比如某个机构坚持做几年。

疫情前我们去过个照顾残疾人的summer camp,24/7 两周,算200小时,给证书。 还有其他跟自己课外活动相关的义工,时间多的可以申请”President''s Volunteer Service Award”, 分金银铜奖,可以在common app里算award/activity的一种。同时做义工的过程是对孩子的极大锻炼,很多essay 故事就诞生在这里。越是好的学校越看重community service。

我们这儿学校里就有一些渠道,比如在图书馆辅导小孩作业啊什么的。我都想参加可是他们不要大人😆 我觉得美国这种volunteer的精神挺好的,华人应该多学习。我平生认识的第一个美国人就是大学毕业以后去非洲参加peace corp的,当时挺为他们感动的。我来美以后还研究过如何参加,但是他们只要美国公民,估计我唯一的机会就是等我孩子参加的时候作为家长去蹭了,不知道我孩子有没有这个觉悟。
我觉得这个事主要还是孩子必须有兴趣,家长偶尔引导一下就好了,看看他的兴趣和特长,希望能够找到一个以后都可以一直做下去的方向。

The goal of these posts is to add to a healthy, educated, and independent upbringing for girls. Even very busy students can spend 5 to 10 minutes a day working on this effort! Be My Eyes This organization pairs student volunteers with blind and low-vision individuals to provide visual assistance through a video app. Students can help folks who have trouble seeing with daily tasks like checking expiration dates, distinguishing between different colors, and reading important instructions. Adopt a Nursing Home Through this Texas Health Care Association project, student volunteers can send letters and online messages to nursing home residents to help keep their spirits high while they can no longer have visitors.  Lifetime Connections Without Walls This organization provides an opportunity for older adults to join classes and activities from the comfort and safety of their homes. Students can virtually volunteer their time by sending reminders about these events or even facilitating sessions. Donate:Code This organization connects students who are willing to donate their coding skills to charities and community groups who need that type of support. Students also have the opportunity to build their skills and portfolios through this volunteer position. Mozilla Mozilla offers another opportunity to students with computer skills to volunteer and help build a better internet. Students can volunteer to help with programming, design, or even testing. Amnesty Decoders This opportunity from an arm of Amnesty International allows students to help identify human rights violations that can become human rights projects using their computers, smart phones, and tablets. Students might find violations like tweets that are abusive to women or even locate vulnerable villages in war-torn regions like Darfur. Teenangels This organization offers an exciting opportunity for students ages 13 to 18 who have an interest in cyber security to help run programs that teach students, parents, and teachers about the safe and responsible use of the internet.  Citizen Scholars This is an opportunity for student history buffs to volunteer for the Smithsonian Institute, which is the largest museum and research complex in the world. Students can virtually assist in transcribing papers of prominent Americans, historic documents, and records from the Smithsonian’s scientific collection to make them more accessible to not only researchers but also the public.  Citizen Archivist This opportunity with the National Archives allows students to help preserve and share public records detailing the story of the United States and its people. Volunteers transcribe, tag, and add comments to these public records to help make them more searchable and accessible. TeensGive This is a fantastic opportunity for students in grades 9 through 12 to tutor other students online without the component of travel that tutoring often requires. TeensGive also focuses on helping students who are behind in school because of disadvantages like former gang membership, homelessness, or inequality. School on Wheels Another teaching-related opportunity, this organization gives students ages 16 to 18 the chance to volunteer to tutor students who are living in shelters, motels, vehicles, group foster homes, and the streets in Southern California. Tutors will work with students ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade. Operation Gratitude This organization gives students who love to write the chance to send thank-you letters to first responders, troops, and veterans to support their efforts and thank them for their service. Project Gutenberg As this organization continues to grow the world’s largest digital library of over 60,000 free books, it needs volunteer proofreaders--a perfect opportunity for students who love to read and write! Bookshare Bookshare’s mission is to make reading more accessible to people who face reading barriers like visual impairments, learning disabilities, dyslexia, and physical disabilities. With this organization, students can volunteer to scan in new books and proofread scanned titles as the collection of over 900,000 titles improves. Tarjimly Students who have second-language skills or are multilingual can volunteer with this app that provides on-demand translation services for immigrants, asylees, and refugees. Translators Without Borders Students who are fluent in two or more languages can also volunteer for Translators Without Borders and translate texts for a variety of international organizations that focus on crisis relief, health, and education.

是的 我们公司这一年也开发了许多网络志愿活动。 当然也有不少人还在一直坚持现场做。 想起去年三四月美国闹口罩慌 我老板坚持每周去Foodbank志愿 没有口罩和手套 还给一些独居老人送物送吃上门。我真的很佩服!

BEST VIRTUAL VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS April is Volunteer Month! Volunteering not only adds value to your resume and college application, but contributing to your community also stimulates your personal and professional growth and allows you to make a difference.  Since the pandemic has moved so much of life digitally, organizations have found ways to engage volunteers using virtual methods as well. With virtual volunteering opportunities, you can contribute to your community and the world at large from the comfort and safety of your home!  Take a look at the following virtual volunteering opportunities for high school students. This list provides a variety of options for students based on a multitude of different interests and skills. Humane Society Though students can’t volunteer in person to work with animals safely during the pandemic, they can still help further the Humane Society’s mission by phone banking. Students must be over 16-years-old to volunteer and will place calls to support the Humane Society’s legislative priorities and ballot initiatives. The Trevor Project Students over the age of 18 can volunteer virtually for the Trevor Project to help staff crisis intervention hotlines and provide support to LGBTQ youth, ages 13 to 24. Best Buddies This organization provides an opportunity for students to help with their e-Buddies program, through which volunteers email with a buddy who has intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, at least once every two weeks. Volunteers are matched with buddies based on interest, games, and location. People in the same states are not matched. This is a great way for students to help those with different abilities feel included and make a new friend. Girls Inc. As a social media ambassador for Girls Inc., students can help amplify the organization’s message by creating and sharing social media posts that teach girls how to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.

骑马是高尚活动。义工不是要为穷人服务?

刚想起来有个蛮有意义的义工,选举时,不只是每四年的大选,各个镇上都需要义工,我们那位之前都去,就去年没去,小孩可以早些申请帮忙,这样他们可以从小了解选举,很好的一项活动。帮过一次后,之后的选举,他们会随时通知你。而且可以从小帮到大。
