High School Service Week

AWA has special weeks of service for high school students to fulfill their community service requirements.

We are offering sessions on a monthly basis to earn 12 hours of credit. 
2017 dates are:

6/7, 6/8, & 6/9

9/6, 9/7, & 9/8

10/18, 10/19, & 10/20

11/15, 11/16, & 11/17

*Please only select from available dates listed as choices on the registration form.  If the date you wish to register your child for is not displayed, it is not yet available.

*All parents/guardians must confirm their child’s participation 30 days prior to the start date of the senior service week.  Please confirm at outreach@awanj.org


Service weeks will occur from 3-7pm. Prior to beginning any service work, all participants will be given a brief orientation and tour of the shelter that will begin at 3:30pm on the first day of their service. All participants MUST arrive on time and be present for this Orientation session. They may complete their minimum of 12 hours of service on the agreed upon dates of the week between the designated times.

Service Work may include clean up projects, special event support, administrative assistance, and more!

Any student who signs up for a service week and is unable to commit to the full 12 hours is asked to contact the Outreach Coordinator at outreach@awanj.org to relinquish their spot so that another student can take their place (as spots are limited). Students will only receive credit if they complete all 12 hours; no hours will be credited if a student participates the first day but does not return the next.

This opportunity does not apply to any court mandated community service volunteers; all court mandated inquiries can be made to our Shelter Manager, Nanci, at nancik@awanj.org.
