Teen Volunteers

Our Teen Volunteer Program is open seasonally to students ages 16+. Teens helping in these roles help with direct, onsite service tasks including answering family questions about the House, processing donations in our pantries, and assisting with simple household tasks like running dishwashers or preparing guestrooms.

Teens may also help to coordinate Family Activity Nights, or learn about philanthropy through planning fundraisers for RMHDE.
