Hello!  I'm grateful to have summers off to enjoy with DS, who will be turning 8 toward the end of the summer.  I'd love to find a place (or places) to volunteer with him and would welcome suggestions.  We live in NE and would mostly use public transportation, ideally, though we'll have a car sometimes.


About DS:  His interests include soccer, chess, animals, Spanish, hiking, geography, and Legos. :)  He cares about animal rights and homelessness.  He's a little on the shy side regarding new experiences.  We're not religious. 


Thanks for any ideas!

I would say OMSI, I know many homeschoolers volunteer there. Not sure the age minimum for the zoo, but I know they have a program for teens.
