Are you a middle or high school student interested in volunteering? Or do you need service hours for school? We make it easy for you to get involved through our VOLUNTEENS program. VOLUNTEENS is a year long program offered to middle and high school students looking to volunteer in their community.
Benefits of being a VOLUNTEEN:
How to apply:
Fill out an application and return it to Volunteer Kalamazoo. As always, be sure you talk to your parent or guardian about VOLUNTEENS before applying.
If you do not already have one, you will also have to create an account with us in order to participate in VOLUNTEENS. Your account is how you access the private VOLUNTEENS listings and is also a great way for you to keep track of your hours!
After submitting your application, you will then be contacted by someone from Volunteer Kalamazoo within a week of submitting your application.
VOLUNTEENS summer programming:
We encourage all VOLUNTEENS to participate in our special summer programming. From June through August we offer a private listing of opportunities that are designed to go beyond your typical volunteer opportunity by helping to build the skills and knowledge you are most interested in. To kick off our summer program, we have an orientation in June. Miss orientation? Not a problem! Anyone who has been accepted into the VOLUNTEENS program may participate!
