"I've been in the VolunTeen program for three years. In my freshman year, I was looking for ways to help out and contribute. I was five years old when my family came to this country and so many people helped us, I wanted to give back.

"I work in the Birth & Women's Center. It's been a great experience, helping nurses, patients and visitors with their needs.

"People my age have so many events and activities. VolunTeens is such a great program because it's mostly over the summer so it accommodates my schedule. All of my friends do some sort of service and it would be great to see more young people participate."
