Volunteer Opportunities for Current High School and College Students

Volunteer to be a Summer Office Volunteer

Are you a high school student who wants to give back to Breakthrough by helping out in the Breakthrough Office at each summer site? We need volunteers to help with daily tasks such as collecting attendance, checking students in and out, setting up for electives, activities, events, and more. Work with a team of other motivated high school students to ensure that Breakthrough runs smoothly and have fun while doing so! Daily hours are Monday-Thursday 8am-4pm and Fridays 8am-1:30pm. We love volunteers who can join us for the whole summer, but we also work with students have just a few weeks available! We are happy to sign your community service forms and verify your hours.
