Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community. It also helps build work expierence for jobs, and gain hours of service for scholarships and college applications.
If you chose to volunteer make sure to record the date, organization name, duties, and hours served for all of your volunteer experiences.
For college admissions, use experiences from the summer before freshman year through senior year only.
