Volunteer Community Service Program

What we do

Are you a middle or high school student who lives in Tompkins County? Are you passionate about any community issues? Do you want to take action to help fix those problems? You can do that while having fun and making new friends!

Funded by the Joint Youth Commission.

Summer Program:

Youth provide community service at local organizations and non-profits each week. At the end of the program, youth plan a project to address an area of need in our community as a culmination of their volunteerism. The Learning Web provides a certificate of completion for each youth at the end of the program and volunteer hours can be used toward community service credits for graduation.

Summer 2024:

The program will take place in two sessions: Session One from July 8th - July 19th and Session Two from July 22nd - August 2nd. Programming runs Monday-Friday from 9:00am - 1:00pm.

Participation is FREE to youth who are residents of Tompkins County and are ages 11-18.
