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 13 months 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
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. We do not accept applications from students in 12th grade.
