volunteer opportunities for college students


The GreenHouse has volunteer partnerships with several local colleges and universities. College students volunteer in our elementary and teen after-school programs, providing tutoring and mentorship for 1st-12th graders. You learn a ton, and it's lots of fun! Volunteering at The GreenHouse as a college student provides:

-- A supportive environment to work with kids, developing your own gifts, skills and passions

-- Helpful experience and references you can use on a resume and job applications

-- An opportunity to get volunteer or internship hours and/or complete your Service Learning Project (additional information below)

-- A flexible schedule to complete your hours, with volunteer opportunities Monday-Friday

-- Internship opportunities that can lead to summer jobs

-- Work-related feedback to develop your professional skills

-- Role modeling from highly experienced older staff

-- A chance to be a role model, inspiring younger kids and teens in your own community!

For more information: please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Gabe Benson, at gabe.thegreenhouse@gmail.com or call 916-402-7978.

Here at The GreenHouse, we have lots of experience supporting college students in designing and implementing their Service Learning Projects (we even have a binder full of great ideas from the past to inspire you).  If you're looking for a supportive environment for this important learning opportunity, GreenHouse after-school programs could be a great fit!
