Volunteer Opportunities

The following is a listing of a number of youth volunteer opportunities in the local Wilmington area. This list is not all inclusive. Students may propose service projects which are not on this list. The Service Program's Statement of Purpose, " Defining Gray" and Service Proposal questions will help determine whether a certain volunteer activity will meet Tower Hill's graduation requirement. A number of volunteer opportunities listed may not meet the spirit of Tower Hill's service requirement, but are included with the idea that if an organization's focus deeply interests a student, the student may propose a unique program which may fulfill the requirement. Many of the service listings have even more detailed volunteer information on file in the community service office. Those listings with little contact/descriptive information have not supplied up to date volunteer informaton. Please contact the Community Service Director if you have any questions or if there are any additional youth volunteer opportunities you feel should be included on this list.
