Teen Volunteer Program

If you’re between the ages of 14–18, volunteer with us for resume-boosting experiences in an environment like no other! Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make some great friends, and score references for your college application or your job hunt – all while giving back to the community. We accept new teen volunteers twice annually: in Summer and during the School Year. Our departments have differing minimum commitments beginning at 50 hours for our Summer Teen volunteers. School Year Teen volunteers must complete 100 hours. For a list of volunteer opportunities, please click here.

Summer Teen Program applications due: April 1, 2019
Late Applications are not accepted. (Applicants must be 14 years old before the application deadline to be considered.)

Upon acceptance into the program, all teens must complete background checks, which differ based on age & residency. All teens under 18 must go through a background check with our company. The cost is free for teens under 18. All teens over 18 must provide and pay for background checks and clearances. Volunteers who have lived in Pennsylvania for at least 10 years must have their Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 33) and Criminal Record Check Clearance (Act 34). Volunteers who have lived in Pennsylvania for less than 10 years must have their Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 33) and Criminal Record Check Clearance (Act 34) plus an FBI Fingerprint Clearance (Act 114). Act 33 and 34 Clearances are free for volunteers.

All teens must submit a Teen Volunteer Application packet and Reference Form before they will be considered for a position. To apply, download a Teen Volunteer Application packet.
