The Group Volunteer Program is corporate, business, or community groups (i.e., youth clubs, scout troops, church groups, service organizations, etc.) who want to volunteer for short-term projects, half a day or one full day. All group members must be at least 14 years old. We are able to host group opportunities between the hours of 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday and every 2nd Friday of the month between the hours of 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM with occasional weekend volunteer opportunities. We ask groups to make a minimum commitment of 3 hours to the project.
