VolunTeen Program

Our VolunTeen Program is designed to give high schoolers in our community more leadership skills and opportunities that will allow them to give back to their community. VolunTeens are trained to act as Volunteer Supervisors in our warehouse where they lead projects and manage volunteers.

The VolunTeen Spring program is now accepting applicants.
Please fill out the application below before December 29, 2018.


Due to higher interest, not all applicants may be accepted.

  • For high school students aged 16-18
  • VolunTeens commit to at least one shift a week in the warehouse where they are leading volunteer projects. Missing two shifts (without notice) will result in termination from the program.
  • Educational and professional seminars will be offered throughout the program.
  • VolunTeens may have the opportunity to volunteer in other areas – Nutrition Education, Monitoring, Mobile Pantries, Research, etc.

The program starts with Orientation on January 15 and runs from January 22 through April 13, 2019.
