High School Assistant Volunteer Opportunities

While the quality of our programming remains the same, the quantities of our services and programs are different as we emerge from this pandemic. We are unable to run the high school assistant program this summer. We hope and anticipate that as the pandemic continues to subside, more of our typical services and programs will return. Until then, we appreciate your understanding.

If you have interest in getting involved during summer 2022, please follow this link to be added to the interest list.
