Summer high school volunteer program

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

Program registration opens on Friday, May 1st 2020.  If you have questions, please email Volunteer Coordinator Cait Spitek at cspitek@familyhouseinc.org.
