We are offering in-person volunteering for the Summer 2024 Junior Volunteer Program to run June 10-August 2.

If you'd like to apply, you must submit an application of interest by February 29, and attend a virtual mandatory information session. The mandatory information session is required for all interested applicants to learn more about the program and see if this is a good fit for your summer schedule. Use this form to state your interest

The mandatory virtual information sessions are:

  • Saturday, March 9, 10-11 a.m. 
  • Tuesday March 12, 7-8 p.m.

You only have to attend one of these and must select a date when you complete the application of interest.

All summer junior volunteers must attend an all-day orientation and training on Monday, June 10. If you cannot make this date, do not submit your name in the lottery because you will not be able to volunteer.
