PRCS Teen Volunteer Program
Teen Volunteer Program
PRCS is a fun and dynamic department to complete community service hours! We'd love to get you set up at a children's program, a park, or a community center to complete your volunteer hours. Volunteer opportunities through PRCS vary, and we're excited to help you find your niche! At the current time, all of our volunteer opportunities are for high school-aged teens.
Teens interested in volunteering should complete these four simple steps:
- Teens should complete and submit the PRCS Volunteer Application online using this link.
- Teens should contact 3 references (other than family members) and ask them to complete the online reference form using this link. (Send this link to your references, do not complete this page yourself)
- Read the PRCS Teen Volunteer Handbook (download here)
- Reserve a spot and attend one of our monthly Volunteer Orientation Workshops.
Our Teen Volunteer Orientation Workshops are held every month
(except May and July) from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the PRCS administrative office in Ashburn (20145 Ashbrook Place, Suite 170, Ashburn VA 20147). If LCPS closes due to inclement weather, the orientation will be canceled and may be rescheduled. Please email to see if the orientation will be rescheduled.
Teens should email to reserve a spot at the next Teen Volunteer Orientation Workshop.
Once all four steps are complete, you will be matched with a site that fits your interests and begin to log your volunteer hours.
For Parents of Teens
Many thanks to all the parents who have spread the word about our Teen Volunteer Program to their children!
If you have a teen who is interested in vol
unteering, please have your teen handle all professional communication. It is very important that your teen is the one completing the application, contacting references, and handling all professional communication. Part of the Teen Volunteer Program is helping teens learn professional communication; if you wish to stay in the loop, we recommend that you have your teen CC you on all emails and we will reply-all.
We kindly request that parents have their children handle all professional communication, including inquiries about the Teen Volunteer Program.
