We know that teenagers can make wonderful volunteers. With their ideas, energy, and willingness to contribute to their communities, they are a rich and sometimes untapped volunteer force for many organizations.

But how should adults approach working with teens? What unique factors should we consider when working with young volunteers – factors that set teens apart from others? Using the successful 4-H Youth Experiences in Science Project (4-H YES Project) as a case study, Part 2 of this Training Designs by Marianne Bird and Sue Manglallan explores how to train adults to work successfully with teenage volunteers.
