This is a short and sweet post (almost like a PSA) about sharing your freelance writing expertise with teenagers.
My nephew and I have similar interests such as art, writing, history, music and design. I’ve been coaching him on how he can get started in freelance writing, even though he’s only 15-years-old. For example, I stumbled across PSE Credit Union (serving Northeast Ohio) which offers The CU Succeed Club for kids. This special club educates kids about finance and money management. I noticed that PSE allows teens to write and submit articles for their newsletter and website. If an article is chosen for their newsletter, kids receive $100 and $50 is donated to their English/journalism department. If their article is chosen for the website, kids receive $50 and $25 is donated to their English/journalism department. It’s a win-win situation!
If you’re inclined to volunteer at a youth organization, share your freelance writing expertise by teaching kids how to become freelance writers. You’ll teach them how to think outside of the normal 9 to 5 work schedule by pursuing freelance writing where they can create their own work schedule and environment. Also, teaching kids how to become freelance writers is a great way to encourage them to become entrepreneurial and own their own businesses.
