In the Mix
Interns & Volunteers: Giving & Getting Back (#437)
Hosted by In the Mix interns, this program looks at various ways teens can gain valuable skills and a head start on careers while making a positive difference in the world. We meet teens volunteering at Youthline, a hotline for their peers; teens that started a mentoring program in their neighborhood, and teen environmental activists who cleaned up their beach. We also take an ambulance ride with an amazing group of teens and lifesaving EMT's, and we see how other teens join Habitat for Humanity to build a house on their spring break. Plus a winner of react magazine's scholarship award and a teen intern at Polygram Records who designs album covers. They all give their time to help others, but they also get back much more in experience and self-esteem. [28 minutes]
