Web site focuses on local teen volunteerism
Girl Scout Liz Wenger, a member of Lititz Troop 70248, is in the process of finishing up her Gold Award Project. For her project, she created a website which acts as a directory of volunteer opportunities for teenagers in the Lititz area.
“Volunteering is an extraordinary way to de-stress and focus one’s energies on something other than personal worries,” said Wenger. “Volunteering is a great way to improve the lives of the people around you while improving yourself.”
The site, gogiltzteen.org, connects teens wishing to volunteer locally with organizations that need their help.
“Looking for volunteer opportunities can be daunting, and yes, volunteering as a teen is a bit tricky because not all jobs are appropriate for teenagers,” Wenger said. “Seeing this issue, I created a solution for this; Get Out, Get Involved: The Lititz Teen Volunteer Project. For the project, I created a directory that outlines and describes volunteer opportunities with service organizations in the Lititz area. I then put the information I collected onto the Internet in the form of a website.”
Wenger welcomes the feedback of teens in the community and hopes the site will serve as a resource for years to come.
Within the next week, students can pick up brochures about the organization and website in the guidance office at WarwickMiddle School and High School. To learn more, visit gogiltzteen.org.
