Step 1: Student Volunteer Overview
Students are required to attend an Information Session prior to receiving an application to volunteer. 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 will be notified of their acceptance into the program no later than May 10, 2012. Acceptance into the student summer program is limited.
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. (For example Sara commits to volunteer every Monday for 5 weeks during his/her session.) This summer students may choose from the following sessions:
Session A: June 10 to July 12
Session B: July 15 to August 16
*Session C: June 10 to August 16 (*For college students only)
All applicants and their parents or guardians interested in this program are asked to consider the following prior to attending the Student Volunteer Information Session:
Will you be 16 years of age by the first day of the program?
Are you planning to go on vacation and will miss a week of service?
Do you plan to participate in band, sports, summer camp, summer school, mission trips, have work commitments or involved in sports that will not allow you to commit to a serving 5-consecutive weeks?
Do you have consistent transportation?
