Teen and Student Volunteers

Teen Volunteer Application & Forms

Volunteering is a great way to help others and also gain valuable skills and experience. Whether you are seeking a volunteer experience to help fulfill an academic requirement, or trying to determine a potential future field of study, the time you spend helping families at the House helps to keep families together when family is needed most. The Student Volunteer Program is a great way for students who wish to gain experience in several fields of interest, from community and social service, non-profit management, hospitality, administrative assistance, and event planning to name a few. Better yet, our Student Volunteer Program is a great opportunity for students seeking school credit; in fact this program is designed specifically with that student in mind!
