Summer Volunteer Information:

  • New Jr. Leaders - sign up for a Training Camp during the first 6 weeks of summer and we'll get you started! 
  • Returning Jr. Leaders - You are not required to complete the training a second time, though you are welcome to register if you would like. Returning JLs should download or pick up a scheduling request form and turn it into the front desk. We will schedule each JL for 40 hours of volunteer service over the summer - 2 weeks of morning (9am-1pm) or afternoon (1-5pm) shifts. After all JLs have been scheduled, there MAY be an opportunity for additional weeks, but due to the number of volunteers that need placed, we cannot make any guarantees.
