Youth Volunteers (ages 14-18)

Are you a middle or high school student wanting to volunteer?

At this time, we are only allowing youth ages 13-17 to volunteer if they can be accompanied by a parent or guardian on their first shift. After the first shift, we will determine with floor staff if they are a good fit to come in solo from there after!  We cannot accommodate youth under the age of 13 and look forward to welcoming more youth volunteer opportunities as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please give fill out an application and indicate you are a youth and parent volunteer.
