Boys and Girls Club
Whether you’d like to help coach a sport, organize an art contest, or mentor a younger student, the Boys and Girls Club in your area is a great place to volunteer. If you’re under 18 you may have to join a club before you can become a volunteer. Click here to check out their website.


Habitat for humanity
If you’re 16 or older you can help on the construction site of a habitat for humanity project. If you’re not old enough, you can still help out by raising funds or getting involved as a leader, planner or press agent. Click here to check out youth programs at Habitat for Humanity.

Local church
Besides volunteering at services, you could get involved with food drives, youth groups, or mission trips. You usually don’t have to be a member of a church to volunteer at it.

Museums or aquariums
If your local museum or aquarium accepts volunteers under the age of 18, you could give tours, short demonstrations, or help with children’s programs. 

Local TV or radio station
You may have a local TV or radio station that’s run entirely by volunteers or one that’s just for students like you. You may help out organizing the library, answering phones and even learn lighting or editing techniques. Check out radio stations and tv stations near you.

Save the earth
The Sierra Student Coalition accepts high school volunteers to run a campaign at your school or to help out at a local Sierra Club chapter to help fight climate change. Click here to see how you can get involved with the Sierra Club.
