Volunteering as a middle or high school student is a great way to gain valuable job experience & references, explore different careers, stand out on college and scholarship applications, expose you to new people and experiences, and most importantly, help others! VOLUNTEENS has been a program of Volunteer Kalamazoo for years and is a great way to get started. Learn more about that program.
Do you have what it takes to be a leader, consider applying for Youth Service Council! We are looking for motivated young women and men, entering grades 9-12, within Kalamazoo County to represent their high school and youth in their area.
