Teen Volunteer Program

Parents/Guardians: It is highly recommended that your tween/teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the application process and continuing throughout their volunteer service.  This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the work force. When at all possible, please ask your teen/tween to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Tweens/Teens - Are you interested in volunteering?  Here's what you need to do:


Step 1 - Teens/Tweens must complete an application form (see below) - LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE.  Completed applications must be submitted to ARPD with payment.


Step 2 - Teens/Tweens must participate in a Group Interview.  Interviews do not guarantee acceptance into the Teen Volunteer Programs.  Interview is for candidates only, no parents please.  Interviews do not guarantee acceptance into the Summer Teen Volunteer Program.  Operation Green Sweep applicants do not have to participate in the Group Interview.


Step 3 - Upon selection, all volunteers must attend a Mandatory Training (make-up training date not available).  See flyer for Mandatory Training Date.  Operation Green Sweep applicants do not need to attending Training.
