Teen Focused Opportunities
nothing at this time
Saleena is allowing 5 articles per week per person for any articles written by teens. Each article is worth 1 hour of service and dated as of the date published. You can write anything: reviews of anything (personal reviews only); thoughts, informative articles, poetry, or stories. Be aware that these are aimed at your peers, not a school project; so you can write in a more informal style (but if writing factual information remember to cite sources). One of the teen staff members will check your article after you email it, any editing and changes have to be done before the article is posted. You will be informed whether it needs work or if it is to be posted, but posting may be delayed if there are a lot of articles. You need to write an article, lists of facts will no longer be accepted, as lists are not sharing thoughts or opinions and can be easily obtained from anywhere.
Another way to volunteer is to make a YouTube video for your fellow teens, or for the little ones (preference is strongly in the “for teens” category). Your video must be submitted to Saleena in a format that can be uploaded to YouTube, and you must clearly state what audience the video is for and your name. You will receive 2.5 hours per video uploaded, dated as of the date the video is uploaded. If any changes or issues arise, you will be notified by email. (The new volunteer time earned is in effect for all videos done as of 3/1/23. Videos prior to that time will keep the hours allotted for making videos at that time).
No more than 3 videos per week allowed. Please note: no more than 3 videos for young children per month.
Remember, you cannot volunteer if you don’t have a current application on file. If you haven’t filed by June 30, you will have to wait until September. Everyone needs to re-submit their application every September.
