Teen Connects

Teen Connects offers stand-alone service projects and fun outings roughly once a month for 6th-12th graders looking for more volunteer experience. Many opportunities will be free, while others may carry a small fee. Whether you are looking to participate just once or regularly, we are excited for any teen to join us as we make a difference, and make friends!
