Youth Volunteer Information & Opportunities
The Ronald McDonald House staff is thrilled to have individuals of all ages volunteer for our House. Many area students fulfill their community service requirements through our organization and frequently, youth groups complete a day of service at our House.
Students 15 years of age and older may refer to the “Adult Volunteer Information and Opportunities” list. We have no weekend volunteer opportunities execpt as a “guest chef”. Volunteers who are 15 years of age or older may volunteer in the House without additional supervision. Those age 11 to 14 may choose from the volunteer opportunities listed below. Our hope is that your child learns the value of serving those in need around their community!
