Youth over 18 can join our regular volunteer program. Our Youth program is for those under 18. Due to federal law, those under 18 cannot care for native birds, but you can assist with care for younger squirrels and opossums, pigeons, and select birds. Other duties are food prep, laundry, dishes, cage cleaning, gardening, landscaping, and repair work. Those volunteers aged 12-15 need to come with a supervising adult who takes the same training and volunteers at the same time as you. Once you are 16, you can be dropped off.

The mission of the Vintage High School Peer Support Program is to help young people develop into positive healthy adults by training and empowering them as leaders who serve others. We do this by welcoming new students, offering peer counseling/mentoring, helping in the resolution of conflicts, and educating students on topics that affect their lives with the belief that helping others will have a continual positive impact on our school as well as our community at large.
Child Start is committed to the development of the whole child—educationally, socially, and emotionally—through our Head Start/Early Head Start programs and in collaboration with community programs and services that benefit low-income families.
