Not Your Typical Teenagers

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - On a morning usually devoted to class, St. Francis Catholic School 7th and 8th graders volunteered their time and energy to The Center for Children and Families.

Because The Center for Children and Families is a non-profit organization, a lot of their funding goes toward keeping the facility open, says Joshua Skinner, volunteer coordinator at The Center for Children and Families. Services such as a janitorial staff aren't in the budget. He says volunteers are crucial to keeping their organization up and running.

Skinner says seeing teenagers volunteer their time and energy is refreshing. He says it shows their generation does care about helping those less fortunate.

Sarah D' Alton and Jacob O'Leary are two of the students from St. Francis. They both say they're happy their school allows them to help out local organizations when they can.
