Step 1: Student Volunteer Overview
Students are required to attend an Information Session prior to receiving an application to volunteer. Students may register to attend an information session if they meet the following criteria:
B) If you are 16 years of age by the first day of the session you would like to participate in--Session A begins June 9, 2014 and Session B begins July 14, 2014, and
C) are currently a high school or college student.
Information Sessions for the summer program are held during the months of January and February. The Student Volunteer Information Session will provide students with general information about the Student Volunteer Program.
After attending an Information Session, students are provided a copy of the application to volunteer. Students must complete the application by the due date to be considered for the Student Volunteer Program. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Students will be notified of their preliminary acceptance into the program no later than May 2014. Students must complete General Orientation, the health information form & other requirements, before they are eligible to volunteer. Please note that, acceptance into the student volunteer program is limited.
Volunteer Shifts Available
During the summer, student volunteers serve Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM. Unfortunately evening and weekend positions are not available during the summer program. Student volunteers serve on the Dallas campus only.
Students commit to completing a minimum of 40 hours of service by volunteering one day each week during the 5-week session of their choice. Volunteer come in the same day and time, once a week, all summer long. Please check your summer scheduled to be absolutely sure you can commit to volunteer for the session of your choice. If your schedule will not allow you to commit to a 5-week session, we ask for you not to apply this year.
