How about opting for activities for youth service? ‘Animal shelter volunteer’,’ volunteer orphanage’,‘teach in schools’, ‘spend time with the old folks’ – do anything, do something…get involved with a cause that interests you and spend some time volunteering. It’s a great way of helping someone as well as gaining some valuable experience.
