Teen Volunteer Weeks
Trade the Pool for a Week of Service Learning
Whether it’s making ginger cookies, figuring out exactly what 501(c)(3) means, or exploring the world of health care, Teens in the House participants stay busy during their week with the Family House. The Family House is filled to the brim with opportunities to learn!
