Teen Volunteering Creates a Positive Impact

We are just two weeks away from accepting submissions for our Annual Teen Essay Contest. As we prepare to receive essays from teenagers all over Connecticut, I had a chance to catch up with last year’s first place winner Caitlin Wardlow this week. Caitlin, now a freshman at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT, shared with me how she got started volunteering and the impact it’s had on her over the last few years. Check out our interview below!

Volunteer Square: When did you first start volunteering and where?

Caitlin Wardlow: I started volunteering at the Stratford Library in the summer of 8th grade. A representative from the library visited my school to talk about volunteer opportunities for teenagers and I signed up. I volunteered at the library until the summer of my senior year of high school.
