Teen Volunteering: Online Service Projects

Volunteer from home, earn service hours

Students in grades 7–12: Give back to your community and help others without leaving home. You'll earn volunteer hours, too! This program is completely flexible: no library card required; no application or training; volunteer when it fits your schedule; no minimum or maximum hours. Do what you can, when you can! And you'll make a positive difference in the world. 

How do I start?

  • Select an organization from the "volunteer activities," listed below.
  • Follow the directions on the organization's website to complete volunteer work.
  • Choose one organization (project) or a few to receive as many volunteer hours as you need.

How do I earn hours?

  • For each activity that you complete, fill out and submit the Teen Volunteering: Online Service Projects form.
  • ​Take a photo of your finished volunteer project (e.g. drawing, coloring project, letter, card, etc.) and upload it to the form.
