Youth Volunteers - Designed for ages 12 to 17

Volunteering is a great way to get connected with your community, discover your personal strengths and career interests, and develop workplace skills. Find out what makes a good volunteer and learn how your experience can help you in the future. Participate in fun classroom activities to learn how to put your best foot forward and then practice what you've learned in our college classrooms with youth camp students.

Class meets from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the Monday of each KICCS week. Choose one Monday -- June 10, June 17, June 24, July 8 or July 15 -- to attend. Registration fee includes classroom materials, snacks and an HCC youth camp STAFF t-shirt.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of this program, participation as a volunteer is limited to 10 students per youth camp week. Contact Workforce Solutions at (270) 707-3750 for details.
