School is in session and it’s time to get our children involved in extra-curricular activities! Students who immerse themselves in after school programs gain confidence and learn lessons at a young age as opposed to a student who isn’t as involved in extracurricular activities. Whether they’re involved in activities such as sports, theater, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) clubs, or even giving back to the community, your child has the opportunity to develop their skills at any young age.
Talk to your child about why it’s important to help other people, even those you don’t know. If your child seems unwilling to be active in sports or interested in STEM, get them involved with non-profits because they just might have the right mind to be a future leader, an event planner, and a natural giver. To help your child get involved with charity, implement the following habits within the household.
Blue Cares works closely with and accepts volunteers of all ages. We work hand-in-hand with organizations such as the San Antonio Police Explorers, which allows young adults who aspire to be in law enforcement to gain skills in public safety, serving the community, and giving back. Learn more about the explorers program HERE. If your child is already showing characteristics of a charitable giver and leader, get them involved in the community now!
