You may choose to volunteer for any of these programs 1-4 times a week as you choose. Interns working for class credit will need to follow the requirements for their academic program.
We will do orientation for volunteers and interns before programs start so plan to be here an hour or two for that prior to starting. All Volunteers/Interns must pass a background check, be 18+ or be chaperoned by a parent/guardian while volunteering.
Please let us know if any of these opportunities sounds interesting to you and if you would like to know more at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can offer some flexible times for other internships with our front desk, or other programs but these times are our greatest need.
