Junior Volunteer Cl​ub

This GIVE 365 program is geared for youth volunteers between the ages of 10-14 who are looking to get involved in community service or earn volunteer hours with Ann Arbor Parks.  

The club will promote various volunteer opportunities with GIVE 365 suited for youth and first time volunteers. Our drop in style allows for flexibility with a variety of projects that will be offered on different days and times at different parks. Sign up for one or as many as you can make and experience the joy of giving back and getting involved in community based stewardship!  

GIVE 365 staff will provide everything needed including materials, instruction, and some extra guidance for first time volunteers. Part of our club mission is to provide training and experiences that prepare teens for their first job. Volunteering in the parks is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and gain valuable skills. Some projects will have maximum registration numbers so pre-registration is required. Parents are welcome to stay on site or drop off. Contact [email protected] or call 734.794.6445 for any questions about the club. ​
