Lighthouse invites you to become involved and participate in our organization. Direct-service, program committee volunteers and special event volunteers will discover a variety of stimulating opportunities conducive to personal growth, and the satisfaction that comes from making a difference.
Lighthouse Youth Services seeks to engage community members; church, civic, school and social groups; and corporate entities. Volunteer opportunities may be short-term, such as one-time projects or special events. We also have ongoing, long-term opportunities that require a minimum commitment of 100 hours. For example:
- 3 months/8 hours per week
- 6 months/4 hours per week
Internship opportunities are available for students enrolled in an accredited college or university fulfilling requirements for a field placement or practicum. Lighthouse requires a commitment of at least 100 hours.*
We would be happy to answer any questions that you may have about the volunteer program at Lighthouse. For more information, contact Lauren Frooman at (513) 487-7154, firstname.lastname@example.org.
