Field Trip Chaperones (Summer Camp Support)
Our team is committed to providing a safe and structured environment while campers explore their community. Ideal candidates are committed to supervising and supporting youth during exciting excursions. Chaperone opportunities are available exclusively to individuals who volunteer within the center as committed session helpers or classroom assistants.
Guest speakers allow our youth to connect with community members in order to gain a new type of knowledge or experience. If you are passionate and well-versed on a specific topic, such as a career choice, career opportunities for teens, or world events, we would like to invite you to plan a guest speaking event at our youth center.
Similar to guest speakers, clinic leaders bring exciting and educational opportunities to our summer program. This is an excellent option if you have a particular interest in an activity that can physically engage our kids through smaller group sessions!
