Teen Volunteer Program

Hey, VH teens with time on your hands, and a resume’ or college application to build! We need your volunteer time and energy, and you need volunteer experience that is meaningful. It’s a win/win!
We invite you to apply to be a Classroom Assistant or a Middle Grounds Snack Shop Associate, and be a part of the positive learning experience for kids at Village Home! Learners at Village Home who are at least 14 years old are welcome to apply.

2. Stays after class to clean up messes, put supplies away, etc (usually takes less than 15 minutes)
3. Helps the instructor during class as instructed. You may make copies, help pass out supplies, work directly with a group, or support an individual who is having a hard time staying focused on the work.

Here’s what a Middle Grounds Associate does:
1. Customer service at the counter – takes orders, collects payment, makes change
2.Fills orders
3. Keeps the area clean and follows all safety rules
4. Other things as assigned

1. A complete application (here)
2. A positive, helpful attitude and a willingness to learn
