Teens invited to volunteer for United Way’s Youth Days of Caring during spring break

WICHITA, Kan., March 7, 2022 — United Way’s annual Youth Days of Caring will be held March 14-18. Volunteer positions are available at projects around the area, including crafting with kids and indoor/outdoor cleaning projects. It’s all part of United Way’s 29th annual Youth Days of Caring for middle school and high school students.

“This is the perfect opportunity to help young people discover the joy of volunteering,” said Becky Springer, United Way of the Plains volunteer center manager. “Investing themselves in the community and helping others provides them with opportunities to learn new skills and understand the role we all play in helping each other achieve our maximum potential. Volunteering enriches their lives and helps them gain a sense of purpose.”
