Opportunities for Youth

At present, we do not offer volunteer opportunities for youth.

One-Time or Short-Term Opportunities

Because our volunteer opportunities require a longer-term commitment and some require intensive training, we cannot offer one-time or short-term volunteer jobs to individuals or groups.
