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.
“I learned a lot about different organizations that helps people in need, and I might want to be a volunteer in the future” –Matthew
2020 Dates: TBD
Cost of the program is $70. Scholarships are available.
