YOUR IMPACT: TEEN SERVICE PROJECTS

Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.

Education
Create a positive learning environment to enable students to find their passion for language and literacy, for a classroom culture where learning is fun. CCS high school volunteers provide hands-on tutoring and instruction, while completing meaningful projects that carve out inspiring learning spaces in libraries and classrooms.

Sports Leadership
Organized sports not only benefits health, but provides a valuable learning and leadership opportunity that keeps children engaged in school. Often, underserved schools lack basic facilities, equipment, and staffing to make sports an integral part of the education of a student. CCS high school volunteers host sports camps and clinics for youth, while building and refurbishing recreational equipment and infrastructure.

Health
Students in many underserved schools lack the basic health education and services essential to their educational development. CCS high school volunteers will work on healthcare initiatives in a school related to Vision, Dental Hygiene, and Nutrition. Volunteers will conduct screenings, workshops, and support teachers, nurses, and medical professionals in efforts to address public health challenges in the school.
