I've been wanting to try this if I could. Im 15 so I could voice children. Any clue how to get started and apply? I don't think Ill get paid if I volunteer though.

To be honest...alot of adults voice children.
First of all, you need to move to Los Angeles. Second, you need someone to represent you, so you'll need to audition with them.Third, you need to have past experience and talent so that people will want you to audition for them.
If you get past all that, you'll still be in a cutthroat business. My advice, make your own cartoons on YouTube and voice act them. It's easier to be an internet celebrity nowadays. And maybe when you're older it will help you choose something more serious and lead to better things.

I heard it's next to impossible to get into main stream voice acting. It's kind of know someone who knows someone type of business.

you need an intesting voice. and for cartoons you need an interesting whiny voice. and for kids for voices for cartoons you need an agent and an interesting, whiny voice!

I'm eighteen, so I can most definitely voice as a little child or a teenager. If I was forced to voice as an adult, I'd have to have a forced voice. Epic win!!! If at all possible, that is.

Many voice actors don't go into the business looking to do just that. They've bounced around the acting scene for some time and usually just stumble into the role. Acting experience is important, especially since the field has evolved since the days of 80's cartoons and anime where pretty much the only requirements were being able to read and speak English. Juding by much of the voicework from those days, even those requirements weren't crucial.

My voice is nothing but entertaining! I can either have a really high voice, or a really low gruff one. Can you picture me sounding like the latter?

Still, to get the job, you need a very entertaining voice, and lots of optimistic spririt inside of you. That's what I guess you need. And, if necessary, manage to get permission to improvise your lines.

I'm sure you'll do great.

Is there a way to sign up for an audition online by sending a voice message to the people? Instead of showing up at a place like los angeles?

Nope. There are a million people, good enough at voice acting, that are willing to do that. It's the people that truly upend their life and take a chance that get the rewards. You'd have to be the second coming of Jesus Voice-Over Christ.

Women voicing children of both genders has been SOP in cartoons (and anime) for years. There are exceptions, of course, but it's easier for a women in most cases to sound more natural as a pre-pubescent child.

Well to answer your question, you might need an agent to kind of get you going, then they can tell what slots might be open, where they take place, all that stuff. They also prepare you for what you might need to know.
