So what can you do to help people who need it? The answer is – volunteer! Volunteering means spending some of your free time helping others. You may volunteer to help other people, such as the families who lost their homes after a natural disaster. Volunteering helps others, but it can also help you, too. Volunteering lets you spend some time focusing on others for a while. Lots of people – and kids – find that they really enjoy volunteering. Volunteer experiences often put you in a different environment and expose you to people and situations that you wouldn’t have come across in your regular life. Your local parks department also might have some suggestions for how kids can volunteer. Often kids start volunteering by working alongside their parents. You might be too young to prepare food at a soup kitchen, but if your parents volunteer there you might be able to go along and pitch in. Volunteering gives kids a taste of responsibility because people are depending on them for something important. A volunteer job can even help some kids decide what they want to do when they grow up.

The Child Protective Services Law requires certain individuals to obtain clearances in order to be employed, be a resource parent, or be a volunteer with children. The purpose for requiring clearances is to provide employers and those selecting volunteers with information to use as a part of a larger decision-making process when determining whether to hire someone as an employee or select them as a volunteer. Clearances are required for an employee or unpaid volunteer at a minimum of every 60 months from the date of the oldest clearance. Clearances may be required more frequently based on licensure or employer requirements. Only a requirement for prospective adoptive parents, prospective foster parents, employees or volunteers of child-day care centers, employees or volunteers of group day-care homes, and employees or volunteers of family child-care homes. Only a requirement for employees and volunteers of child day-care centers, group day-care homes or family child-care homes.
