Join HandsOn NEO's Youth Volunteer Corps for a Saturday afternoon of service and fun! Teen volunteers (ages 11-18) are invited to participate in a unique and fun volunteer opportunity on the last Saturday of every month! Teens will learn about different issue areas while completing fun volunteer projects together.
Each month's project will focus on a different issue area and will include icebreakers, a service project with service learning, and a reflection.
HandsOn is proud to be an affiliate of the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC).
