I am interested in doing volunteer work where children are needed for tutoring or I am needed for making their living environment a safer, cleaner place. I am a 16 year old teenager at University school and have never volunteered outside of my school. Organizations such as habitat for humanity and Amnesty International are intriguing to me. I speak both French and Spanish, aside from English language and i am ready to start where I can be useful
