Idlewild Youth Service Project

We are seeking community residents of all ages as we bring in youth from partnering schools to perform service acts in our wonderful community. We need people to assistance with meal preparation, oral history presenters, group leaders, set up/ break down crew, and trash removal. Please complete the application specifically for the Idlewild Youth Service Project, as there are extra review requirements for volunteers because we will be working with children. Local community children are encouraged to participate as group leaders or peer volunteers along with our partnered school groups.
