    We have volunteered at our local food bank with homeschool groups. Those were such great experiences. I’ve also volunteered at the library to earn our pay for a library card that’s out of our boundaries. Such rewarding experiences!

    1. Ellen@HomeschoolingHighway says:

      Wow! Those are great ideas, Desiree. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Volunteering teaches so much, no matter where you do it. And there are tons of opportunities. They don’t have to be formal or put together by someone else. What a great way to include this letter in homeschooling. It is important.
