Summer Teen Volunteer Program
2017 Applications Being Accepted Now!
Lakeshore’s summer teen volunteer program runs June through August for teens ages 16 to 18 who have not graduated from high school. Once a teen has participated in our summer program, he or she is then qualified to volunteer year-round at Lakeshore Foundation. By volunteering at Lakeshore, teens will build leadership, teamwork and customer service skills. They will also gain a better understanding of why being active in fitness, recreation, sport and research opportunities is critical to individuals with a physical disability and/or chronic health condition. Summer teens will work in a variety of program areas within Lakeshore including athletics, aquatics, fitness, membership, communications or recreation.
2017 Applications are due by April 5, 2017
