Summer Volunteer Program for High School Students

Family House Summer Volunteer Program for High School StudentsWelcome! Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Family House. We provide a home away from home for families with a child receiving treatment for a serious illness at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

If you are a high school student looking for a summer volunteer opportunity, the 5 week Family House Summer Volunteer Program might be a perfect match for you!

Are you interested in working with families and children, non-profit management, hospitality, event planning, marketing, and social media? Volunteering at Family House is a great way to make a difference in your community, discover a new interest, make new friends, and have fun!

Each week students will participate in activities which may include; engaging with families, collaborating with peers and Family House staff, assisting with administrative & event support, and facilitating daily tasks including large scale projects.
