    Places that Need Teen Volunteers 


    1) Bravo Youth Squad Bravo is the volunteer ambulance in our area.  BRAVO started a teenage group called the BRAVO Youth Squad for teenagers between 14 and 18 years old. Through training, they are prepared to join the senior squad to dispatch and work on the ambulances. They learn CPR, how to take blood pressure and learn how to dispatch emergency calls. Application   The youth squad went bowling too. All members of the youth squad get sweatshirts (or at least they have in the past)
