Ways for Children to Volunteer

Children of all ages can benefit from volunteering and giving back to the community, Oprah Radio host Rabbi Shmuley Boteach says. "We all want to raise good kids, and part of doing that is giving them real responsibilities, above and beyond doing the dishes," he says. "When we don't give kids responsibilities, we pay the price. Kids can become lazy and complacent and too self-focused. Volunteering and giving back prevents that and helps others."

Rabbi Shmuley shares age-appropriate volunteering activities your children can participate in.
