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

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 ten-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.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Summer Youth Program. Our onboarding sessions for this year have concluded. Please visit our website in January 2020 for new information.
