Summer Community Service project performed in conjunction with the YMCA of Hilo.
Make a difference in a child’s life! Spend one-on-one time with underprivileged children in a nurturing and caring environment. Actively participate and guide the children through their daily summer curriculum, which includes: character and leadership development, health and life skills, arts, sports, fitness, recreation and cultures of Hawaii. Through these daily interactions, build special friendships and relationships with the children, which will help promote positive self-image, build self-esteem and reinforce pro-social skills. Experience life changing opportunities while helping Big Island youth grow and learn through interactive projects, summer fun activities and workshops.
- Service Details
- Summer Community Service Hawaii participants volunteer with the same project for the length of the program, in order to create meaningful bonds between our volunteers and the children they are helping.
- Participants volunteer on weekdays, earning a total of 60 hours of Summer Community Service credit.
- Service project space is limited at each volunteer site, so project selections are granted following your date of enrollment, based on a first-come, first-served basis.
- The goal of community service is not only to give back to the community but for our participants to also learn and grow through their experiences.
