We’re excited to announce a brand new way for students in grades 7-12 to volunteer their time! All of the volunteer opportunities and activities can be completed online or at home, and logging your time is online as well. This way, you can earn your service hours (and help your community!) as safely as possible. Students can earn up to five service hours this summer. Create your account and start volunteering here:
