    Any recommendations? I have: Library, Food Bank, Hospital, etc...
    but my son isn't really interested in those...he's great in Math. So, I thought Math of some sort; but he really needs "community" hours...so, am I missing something here?
    :help:

    My son did his at the local Salvation Army. He was not at all interested but ended up enjoying it and still goes about once a month to help them out. The 2 ladies that run the center love him and will call him if they need something delivered or something heavy lifted. He put them off until the last minute so he did not have much choice in what he did so he had to go for the easiest option but it ended up making a difference in his life. It helped him grow up a lot.

    I just saw a sign up at my local library asking if any high school kids were willing to tutor younger students (at the library) during the summer. If they dont' have that type of program maybe he could ask them to put up his own flier.

    I was thinking tutoring, as well. Or if a local church/non-profit is having a rummage sale/garage sale/junk sale (that are so popular in the summer), he could work the cash register.

    He could volunteer to play games with nursing home residents or senior center visitors. I bet a lot of them would love to have a chess or cards partner. He could also read to people.

    I think this is a great idea. If we had some high school kids that were willing to help with small groups on the basics, or even higher level problem solving while we had the rest I would love it!!!!

    Tutoring is a good suggestion.
