Apply For High School Summer Service Program

Wellington is again offering teenagers meaningful, resume-boosting volunteer experience this summer through the High School Summer Service Program, which pairs incoming high school juniors and seniors with various Wellington departments, allowing students to learn more about how local government works and get a taste of a real-world professional setting while racking up community service hours.

To participate, students must be entering their junior or senior years in high school, must have at least a 3.0 GPA and provide two letters of recommendation. Students should also be able to commit to volunteering eight hours each week, in either two four-hour blocks or one eight-hour block, from June 16 through Aug. 7.

Applications can be found at all village locations. Completed applications will be accepted until Thursday, May 16, but space is limited, so be sure to submit applications early.
