1. Become a mentor. Children today lack a positive role model in their lives. Your presence could make the difference.
2. Be a tutor. Kids who fall behind in school are at greater risk than those who don't. A tutor can help close the academic gap.
3. Become an advocate. You can be the voice for a child in the court system where their voice is often not heard. Volunteers are always needed.
4. Open you home as a foster or adoptive parent. There are hundreds of thousands of children who need temporary and permanent homes. It is a big commitment with even bigger pay off.
5.Be yourself. Bring whatever talent or skill you have to a local charity that works with children. Chances are they could use what you have to offer.
Take away: Involvement of caring adults has a huge impact on children's lives, especially those who face multiple challenges.
