High School Program

High School Volunteer Program

This unique program is for teens who are at least 14 years of age and in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade at the time of orientation. The High School Volunteer Program requires a commitment to volunteering for a full one year of service with either a weekly 2 hour assigned shift during the weekdays or a 4 hour assigned shift on alternating weekends in our Escort Services department. Please note: the last opportunity to apply to the program is to apply for the spring orientation (usually held in February or March) of your 11th grade year. Please refer to the website for dates for submittal of pre-application. We do not accept applications from students in 12th grade.

Application Process

The application process for the high school volunteer program is currently being modified. Please check our website in early December, 2015 for specific information on how to apply to the program. We will be holding a Spring 2016 orientation and dates are pending at this time.

Important notes: 1) Based on past experience we expect to receive significantly more applications than we can accommodate at orientation. 2) In fairness to other families, we accept one application per household per orientation.
