So, lately I’ve really been feeling called to volunteer and help others, but all I’m finding is barriers. I’m a 14-year-old rising sophomore, and I’d like to be able to help others relatively directly, but almost any oppopportunities to volunteer out there require you to be 16 (I’ll be a quarter of the way through junior year by then), and the ones that don’t make you bring your parent, which won’t be possible for me! I’m passionate about a lot of things like medicine, gardens, anything related to kids, animals etc. and though I could prob just start weeding a roadside overgrown weedy thing, it’s not exactly the type of helping people I’d like to do. My mom’s solution to this is ‘start your own organization’ but I have no clue how to do that! She thinks I can just collect cards for soldiers or something and therefore get college boasting abilities and be set, but I want to actually DO something and, though I really appreciate soldiers and all they do for us, I’d rather donate to a homeless shelter or children’s hospital anyway. I really feel called to help kids. And I don’t want to have ulterior motives anyway. Anyone have suggestions? Oh and sorry if there’s spelling probs I wrote this out on my phone 🙂

Okay, so I imagine where you live that there is a place that isn’t great. Like the hood in that’s what you call it. Gang territory, whatever, I think you understand.
