  • Applications for Summer 2014 will be available in May.  Training will be in June.
  • Volunteers must be in 7th grade to apply. 

  • In order to do any work in the Children’s Dept,  you MUST come to a MANDATORY training session even if you’ve volunteered for us before.

  • We holding training sessions in September, January and June.  You only have to do it once, but you CANNOT volunteer for a program with children unless you do so. We will be going over administrative procedures, introducing you to staff, going over new policies and talking a bit about how to work with children (and grown ups).

  • We are not accepting applications for new Story Teens at this time.  Please check back in June.
