Links to help you find a place to volunteer

Junior year is really the year to engage fully with your community -- at school and out side of school. You should absolutely be onvolved with a school club, but also volunteer somewhere. The links below will give you a place to start looking...

An after school activity or club. This can be a sport or better yet, an extra-curricular activity.

Check the Washburn page for activities. Email the advisor and find out how to join.

Another possibility is that you create your own club.

 

A volunteer position within your community. You can find your own volunteering job – like in your church or community/park center, but otherwise you need to look for something. Pay attention to the descriptions. Not all opportunities are available for people under the age of 18.
