Student Volunteering

Student Volunteering

Volunteering gives you an opportunity to change lives, including your own.  Every year, thousands of youth help their community through volunteer service. Students clean creeks, serve the hungry, tutor children, and contribute in so many other ways. There are 200+ volunteer opportunities available to youth ages 13-17 in the East Bay.
