Mandated community service hours & required volunteer hours for school

We regret to inform you that we are unable to accommodate court-mandated community service at this time. Additionally, please note that fulfilling the volunteer hour requirements for most schools exceeds what can typically be achieved within one semester at our Center.

We do not have opportunities for large groups of volunteers at this time.

Currently, we are unable to accept any volunteers under the age of 18.

The Mental Health Department internships are separate from the volunteer department, feel free to look into that here [link]. We do not currently have opportunities for clinical hours within our health services department.
