Engaging youth as volunteers is a popular trend. The VAC provides opportunities for youth to engage in service projects that are challenging, rewarding, educational and safe. For teenagers, volunteering brings a new sense of confidence, self-gratification and a good model for interacting in the world. Volunteering also enables young people to develop new communication, career building and social skills that will be useful in other facets of their lives.
