If you are a high school student, this is a great way to earn your volunteer hours credit! Successful applicants will be notified by email and will be invited to attend a mandatory orientation session.

Required Availability: We’re looking for volunteers who can join us bi-weekly (about 2 Sundays per month, November – April, from 1–4 pm)

Application Deadline: Monday, October 9
