SUMMER IS COMING!

School is out. Volunteering is in! As school winds down, we celebrate the youth who volunteer for the fun of it, to explore interests, to meet new people and make new friends, to build resume and college application experience, to share talents and skills, or advance the common good. And, parents also know that volunteering is a great way to get them out of the house! Search for youth volunteer opportunities: Student volunteering or www.volunteereastbay.org
