FLOWER MOUND TEENS

 

Teens deserve a healthy lifestyle and Flower Mound provides many opportunities for students who are college bound or interested in volunteering: http://www.flower-mound.com/1261/Teens to become leaders. Individuals can find a lot of information in the section called "Flower Mound NextGen."

 

Becoming 16 years old is exciting and can be stressful if a teen has to find work. There are many exciting opportunities for teens within the Town, e.g., lifeguard, water safety instructor, librarian assistance shelving books, volunteering at hospitals, senior centers, or the Community Activity Center. Keeping teens in the community, a place where they are familiar has positive results on teens, families, and friends. 

 

Serving as a volunteer looks good on College applications and it's a good way to learn about the needs of the people and the community! There are many ways in which teenagers can give back to the community and it's the people within the community that often give best referrals. 

 

FLOWER MOUND YOUTH ACTION COUNCIL (FMYAC)

Serving on the Flower Mound Youth Action Council motivates students to learn about government affairs. As a member of the advisory group, there are diverse opportunities to learn about fields of education, health, and education. Examples where opportunities may exist include:

 

  • Town Council
  • Parks
  • Arts & Library Services (PALS) Board
  • Executive Team
  • Recreation & Leisure
  • Animal Services
  • CERT (Citizen Emergency Response Team)

 

MILITARY & PEACE OFFICER - Air Force Junior ROTC 

 

CHARITY & MINISTRY

An organization that has been very successful in doing a lot of good includes members of the Teen Grant Wishes With Art for Make a Wish Foundation. In addition, there are numerous churches in the area that offer special programs including teen ministry retreats and community services. CCA (Community Christian Action) brings hope to students in need of school supplies and of course the Food Pantry is always in need of volunteers to keep shelves stocked for the needy.

 

FLOWER MOUND SCHOOLS

Lewisville ISD loves to keep students and teens involved in volunteering in healthy environments. Teachers and Educators know how important it is for young adults to stay positive. That's why Flower Mound High School's Wall of Positivity has had a profound effect on many students. NBC News recently shared the good news on their networks demonstrating how Flower Mound High School students encourage each other by writing something nice on the Wall of Positivity. 

 

In Flower Mound, the goal is to make sure from an early age on everyone plays nice in the sandbox and continues to do good deeds for others.

This is a fantastic idea to provide service outlets for teens Patricia. It often gives them a vested interest in the community and create healthy self-esteem and self-worth.

Patricia that is a lot of opportunities for teens.  Your blog brought back a lot of memories for me from when I was 16 years old.  I am amazed at how much I still remember about that time in my life, yet I have a hard time remembering what I did yesterday :) :) :)

Endre Barath, Jr. - Too often agents and buyers focus on what's available and the price. We need to remember it's a long time commitment and people don't know how long they'll stay but until the future is known, there will be kids, or at least there will be kids in the neighborhood. Children grow up and when they do, the community has to be prepared with things for teens to do.

Dorie Dillard - Teens are especially vulnerable. That's why as a community we have to take care of all our children, especially adults and organizations who could help guide them into doing meaning work. Giving back to the community where they live is a great idea.

Ricki Eichler McCallum - It's a win-win for both the teens and the community. I believe it's healthier for them to start off in an environment they are familiar with first before sending them out into the world of the unknown. As citizens, we owe it to them to provide support and if we have skills to help them learn, it's a positive achievement for all.
