Junior Volunteer Program
This is structured as a summer program primarily, although trained junior volunteers may choose to continue their volunteer work in the after-school program as well. New junior volunteer applications are accepted January 1 through May 1 every year. Interviews are held in May, and orientations and training starts in June. This program fills up quickly.
