Teen Community Service

Volunteering is a great way for you to grow from new experiences, develop new skills, expand your worldview, and use your time to make a difference. According to PrepScholar.com, “Admissions officers also love to see community service on college applications. Having community service experience means you’re passionate about making a difference in the world and are ready to take action and be involved.”

Whether you are looking to volunteer with friends, complete volunteer service hour requirements, or volunteer for a cause or passion that you feel strongly about – Riverdale Y is here to help you on your volunteer journey.
