Spring break is a great time for teens to have fun doing good during United Way’s Youth Days of Caring

WICHITA, Kan., Feb. 21, 2019 — It might still be cold out, but spring break is right around the corner. Make plans now for your teen to have fun volunteering through Youth Days of Caring, Mar. 11-15. We have 1,000 volunteer positions available at projects all over the area, including remodeling a house, working with animals, cleaning, crafting with kids and much more. It’s all part of United Way’s 26th annual Youth Days of Caring for middle school and high school students.

“Youth Days of Caring is an excellent way for students to improve their social skills while working with others and learning the value of volunteering for a community’s well-being,” said Patrick J. Hanrahan, United Way of the Plains president and CEO.

Register online at www.unitedwayplains.org/springbreak. Those without computer access can call 2-1-1 (United Way’s 24-hour information phone line). Students register for volunteer projects on a first-come-first-served basis; minimum age 12, depending on the project. Sign-up ends March 5.
