Participants are placed, according to their skills and interests, to do valuable work in support of diverse causes including hunger and food security, child development, arts and empowerment, and sports and recreation. Non-profit agencies are stepping up to provide rewarding placements and training for youth, so they can develop their skills in a safe, enriching environment this summer.
During the six week program, junior volunteers will work at their non-profit placement for a maximum of four hours per day for up to four days per week. Youth will also participate in job readiness and empowerment workshops and engage in service projects and field trips. Finally, participants will share their voices by writing about their experiences online at the Watsonville Patch.
The Junior Volunteers program aims to help youth recognize their passion, share their talent and realize their power to transform our community through service. Youth will have fun while amplifying their voice and impact in Watsonville and beyond!
