Summer volunteer opportunities have variable schedules. They range from full-time (e.g. Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) to part-time programs (e.g. 3 mornings per week or evenings or weekends). Volunteers are required to commit to attending all scheduled shifts for their assigned program.

You must be able to complete all mandatory online and in-person orientations and trainings before your start date.
