Volunteens



Volunteens Program

JULY 5 - JULY 29, 2022 | 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM 


Earn volunteer hours and gain experience working with a non-profit like the Summit Area YMCA!

VolunTEENS is a 4-week summer program that provides the young adults in our community (high school students grades 8 -12) with opportunities to learn the importance of using their strengths and skills to help or serve others, especially to those in need. Participants are required to commit 4-weeks to the program and will be assigned to tasks at off-site volunteer locations based on their interests and skill set. The program runs Monday-Thursday and the schedule varies by location between 9:00 AM-12:00 PM. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to off-site volunteer locations. Upon program completion all volunteers receive community service certifications and are treated to lunch.

 

What Do VolunTeens Do?

As a VolunTEEN, you will have a chance to experience different volunteer opportunities with the Y for example, assisting with youth sports, swim and childcare programs, sorting or distributing food at community events like the food bank, cleaning up our community garden, organizing clothing drives, off-site cleanups, hosting activities at the local senior center, creating content for marketing and social media and more.

After successfully completing the program, many VolunTEENS continue gifting their time at other YMCA events that call for volunteers.
