There's no better way to teach youth that they can make a difference in their own community than by having them volunteer. That's why we encourage youth to volunteer independently and for families to volunteer together as a team.
We offer many opportunities for engagement, depending on the requirements of each nonprofit's project. Each opportunity post will indicate if you can sign up and reserve a slot right away, or if you will need to express interest to the nonprofit, who will then contact you to schedule you to serve. You can further narrow your search using the search filters listed there as well. Remember - youth, just like every other volunteer, must be registered for any opportunities they plan to attend.
What does minimum age and minimum age with an adult mean?
- Minimum age is the youngest age a youth can be to sign up and participate without an adult volunteer.
- Minimum age with adult is the youngest age a youth must be signed up with a parent, guardian or responsible adult as a team.
Most of the time, groups volunteering with younger kids, will need to create a team to volunteer together.
What if I'm under 13?
Volunteers under the age of 13 are not able to sign up for individual accounts with email through our website due to the Federal Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Parents or other responsible adults will need to create a team to volunteer with and sign up with children under 13.
