We need teen power! With your help, we can improve the learning environment for our K– 5 students.

Over the Summer

We have volunteer opportunities at both a public library and a public elementary school. Choose the date(s) and location(s) that work best for you!

Choose one or choose them all! We’d love to have your help preparing for the new school year.
