Looking for a way to prevent summer boredom? These volunteer opportunities for both youth and adults will allow for a fun-filled summer full of giving.

Voice of Hope

Serving at-risk children and summer fun go hand in hand when volunteering at Voice of Hope Ministries Summer Day Camp. The Voice of Hope camp provides children living in West Dallas “with strong character models, education support, life skills and family support services to become productive Christian citizens.” Day camps run from June 9-Aug. 1. Be prepared to play sports, take part in enriching activities, chaperoning field trips all while building students’ confidence and promote learning. voiceofhope.org 

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children

Who says you have to be a nurse or doctor to work in a hospital? Volunteers are a vital part of Texas Scottish Rite hospital’s warm and friendly atmosphere. From greeting patients and their families, to manning the hospital’s unique popcorn stand and everything in between, Scottish Rite has something for everyone. The junior volunteer five week program, for ages 14-17, allows youth to gain real-life work experience and be introduced to the medical field.  tsrhc.org
