I wish I'd found this book a year or three ago, when my youngest was still in high school.  It's "The Teenagers' Guide to School Outside the Box" and gives wonderful ideas for volunteering, internships, shadowing etc., along with anectdotes from students who've done these things.  I had to get that (and Taming the Homework Monster") just to share here.

"Outside the Box" is gone; "Homework Monster" remains

Thanks for sharing! I just ordered it for my 13 year old son. I really should stay out of these forums! :-)
