Teen Volunteer Weeks
Trade the Pool for a Week of Service Learning
Whether it’s folding a fitted sheet, making ginger cookies, or figuring out exactly what 501(c)(3) means, the Family House is filled to the brim with opportunities to learn.
What better way to learn than a hands-on service learning program?
This summer the Family House is offering four separate weeks for middle and high school students who are ready for an inside peek at what it takes to make a successful non-profit run. Students will visit a hospital, explore the various support services that the Family House provides to guests, cook a meal for guests – and so much more!
Students receive 16 service hours upon completion.
All Teens in the House dates are full! To be placed on the waitlist for future dates, please email Emily Kaartunen at firstname.lastname@example.org with the student name and desired date.
Dates for Rising Middle Schoolers:
July 15 – 18 (FULL) OR July 29 – August 1 (FULL)
Dates for Rising High Schoolers:
June 17 – 20 (FULL) OR July 22 – 25 (FULL)
(students are asked to apply as the grade they will be in the fall)
The program is Monday – Thursday 9am – 1pm.
Applications are open for the last two weeks in July.
Cost of the program is $70. Scholarships are available.
