Volunteer Your Time
There are many fun things to do around Woodbury, but for those with a more altruistic personality, volunteering your time provides some much-needed help to those in need. Even simple good deeds can go a long way in making someone’s day, while not putting too much of a burden on your schedule — for example, you could mow the lawn for your neighbor, send baked goods to friends or even volunteer at a local food pantry like the Community Services Council of Woodbury (CSCW).
Become A Financial Guru
The younger you start learning about investing your money and planning your financial future, the better off you’ll be down the road. And, today it’s easier than ever to learn about smart investments through many online publications, video platforms and investment apps. And, generation Z is shifting from the old, boring investing strategies of baby boomers. Cryptocurrency has become a welcome alternative for younger generations, with many coins growing in value from pennies to thousands of dollars. Those with enough computer experience can even try mining their own crypto in the pursuit of becoming financial whales themselves.
Go On A Trip
There’s no better time to go on an adventure than when you’re young — so make a memory by planning a fun trip. Fortunately, Minnesota is home to many wonderful destinations that are great for a quick getaway that shouldn’t worry the parents too much. Invite your girlfriend or boyfriend on a romantic excursion, get away from crowds at one several outdoorsy destinations or pick a spot on a map and drive to almost anywhere in the state to peep the leaves this fall. And, since you’re likely living off of a summer job, there are even some trusty ways to save money, wherever you travel.
Take Flying Lessons
For those wanting to explore in style, there’s nothing cooler than flying an airplane to your favorite destinations. The best part? Any age can participate in flight school — you simply need to be 16 to solo and 17 to obtain official certification. In fact, you can take control of the cockpit years before you can take control of a car. As such, it’s an impressive but attainable goal to take flying lessons as a high schooler. Plus, it’s an exciting hobby that looks great on a college application and can transform into a lucrative future career. If you’re in high school and want to learn how to fly, take a look at Inflight Pilot Training’s Discovery Flight option. You’ll get the chance to pilot a plane yourself thousands of feet above the ground while receiving introductory training from a certified flight instructor (CFI).
