High School Service Week

AWA has special weeks of service for high school students to fulfill their community service requirements.

We are offering sessions in 2019 to earn 6 hours of credit.

*Please only select from available dates listed as choices on the registration form.  If the date you wish to register your child for is not displayed, it is not yet available. Apply below and please note that you must login or register for AWA’s website before choosing your child’s service week.

If you are unable to attend one of these weeks, AWA is now offering volunteer hours to high school students every Monday. For more information, please email volunteers@awanj.org.

2019 Dates

January 7-9
April 8-10
May 20-22
October 28-30

Service weeks will occur from 3:30-5:30pm. Prior to beginning any service work, all participants will be given a brief orientation and tour of the shelter that will begin at 3:30pm on the first day of their service. All participants MUST arrive on time and be present for this Orientation session. They may complete their minimum of 6 hours of service on the agreed upon dates of the week between the designated times.

Service Work may include clean up projects, special event support, administrative assistance, and more!

Any student who signs up for a service week and is unable to commit to the full 6 hours is asked to contact the Outreach Coordinator at outreach@awanj.org to relinquish their spot so that another student can take their place (as spots are limited). Students will only receive credit if they complete all 6 hours; no hours will be credited if a student participates the first day but does not return the next.

This opportunity does not apply to any court mandated community service volunteers; all court mandated inquiries
can be made to our Shelter Manager, Nanci, at nancik@awanj.org.

Questions? Contact our Outreach Coordinator at outreach@awanj.org

All parents/guardians must confirm their child’s participation 30 days prior to the start date of the senior service week.
Please confirm at outreach@awanj.org

Students under 18 must have parent or guardian complete the student’s registration and paperwork.
