Where Can I Volunteer?

There are many places in the community  to volunteer.  Before you decide where to go, ask yourself "What do I enjoy?", "Is there something for which I am passionate?", "Am I already volunteering somewhere?", "Is there a volunteer opportunity that will be of assistance in the college application process or in my future career?".  If you cannot find a place to volunteer, visit Mr. Nichols and he will help you brainstorm.
These are just a few ideas, you will need to contact these places before volunteering:
