We have no specific time requirements for our volunteers and would love to work with you as much or as little as you would like!

Age Requirement
We are more than happy to work with a wide variety of ages young and older!  We accept volunteers as young as thirteen as long they are accompanied by an adult. 

High school students are highly encourage to volunteer with us, and do not need to be accompanied by an adult if they are over the age of sixteen. We will happily provide them with letters of recommendation/participation, to help them meet graduation guidelines. If they volunteer on a regular basis, we would also be willing to write them recommendations for future jobs or college!
