Offering an Opportunity for Young People to Give Back to UH Cleveland and the Community

The summer youth program has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus. Please join us next year.

While volunteering is a fun and very rewarding experience, it is also a very serious commitment. Volunteering requires that you be willing to learn, work hard, act responsibly and be open to new experiences. The Summer Youth Volunteer Leadership Program is a 10-week program for students age 15 through graduation. Participants volunteer four hours per week. Students are permitted to miss only one week. At the conclusion of the program, participants receive a certificate documenting completion.

Please note: All applications and references must be received by the session date you have signed up for. If we have not received your documents, your reservation will be forfeited.
