“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for volunteer opportunities for my 15 y.o. which are part of consequences for consuming alcohol with friends on two occasions. Happy to consider all suggestions though either several hours a day for a week (note the summer is here!), a couple of weekends, or a few hours one day a week for a couple of month type options are of most interest. I hope it would encourage him to continue for longer, but the main aim is for him to have the experience of doing something for someone other than himself (as those with teens will know at this stage of their development a big focus is defining who they are in their world – so plenty of self focus!).

Any thoughts?”
