Colleges and future employers will appreciate the job skills acquired, while teens may get the opportunity to interact with people or in situations that they may not usually be exposed to–always a learning opportunity!
Here’s a great article from Monster.com about how volunteering can set students on the right path towards a career they want:

A great resource to direct your teen to is the resume tips tab on the Office Live Students Facebook Page. It has advice on resumes, job searches, networking, interviewing, and career planning:
