When I was a teenager, I remember occasionally helping a neighbor with her groceries or babysitting at church during a service. I don’t remember much emphasis on community service, except for the few years I was a Girl Scout. Most of the emphasis was getting a job to pay for extras that I wanted and to save for college. Those jobs included more babysitting, working at Montgomery Wards, and serving ten cent hot dogs at grocery stores. If I had time to volunteer, it was for my dad mowing the lawn or polishing the floors for my mom. Times have changed. That extra money is still important to most kids. Chores are part of being a family. Kids are still saving for college, travel and to buy the next technical widget. Colleges still look at service work. There are a lot of personal benefits to volunteering.
