Family House Summer Volunteer Program for High School StudentsGreetings! Family House is seeking motivated high school students that want to make a difference in the lives of families with a child receiving treatment at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. If you are a high school student looking for a summer volunteer opportunity, the 6-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, and marketing?
