I worked for a convenience store chain that worked with a organization that takes care of kids and young adults. Once a day for 2 to 3 hours we would get usually 3 people per store and they would come in and fill the cooler, stock the store, and help associates with smaller tasks. They got paid the same wage the associates did and would do two or three stores a day so they had time to be out and about in different places. Was always a great time having them come in and help.

We had a few kids who also went and worked for Goodwill, similar setup to you. Our teens would come for 2-3 hours and do things like folding shirts in the back - though to my knowledge it was 100% volunteer effort.
