United Way Summer Serve 2016
United Way Summer Serve engages area youth ages 12-17 in volunteer service projects at various nonprofit agencies throughout Frederick County.
The program consists of three separate two-week sessions that will provide the participants with a comprehensive understanding of the areas of need in our community. The participants will experience a team-based environment that will present them with challenges and opportunities to grow their leadership skills. The program runs weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm June 20th to August 8th (except for July 4th - July 8th).
Leadership Week runs from August 8th to August 12th and is available to any who have registered for Sessions 1, 2 and/or 3 of Summer Serve 2016. Leadership Week will give participants an opportunity to further expand upon their ability to work well with others and teach them how they can serve as a catalyst for positive change in their community.
