We offer three sessions each year
Each session has an open application period that starts approximately one month before the session begins during which a link to the application form is made available to interested students. It is only during this open application period that applications are accepted. Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee a volunteer spot because there may be more applications than there are open student volunteer positions. Submitted applications are processed by the Student Volunteer Coordinator who, at the end of the open application period, sends a decision email to each individual that applied.
Student volunteers must meet the following requirements:
16 years or older
Able to commit to the entire session, typically one day per week for 2.5 hours excluding holidays, so please check your calendar for the entire session to make sure sports or other extracurriculars will create conflicts as we have limited spots and want to involve as many students as possible
If a student misses more than two days then their involvement may be reviewed
Typical weekly schedule
If you're curious what it's like to be a student volunteer, what types of tasks student volunteers perform, or what times they volunteer, then take a look at the 2018 Summer Schedule for Student Volunteers (note that each day has a different group of volunteers) and Student Volunteer Guidelines.
