United Way Summer Serve

United Way Summer Serve 2015

United Way Summer Serve engages area youth 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 opportunities and challenges to grow their leadership skills. The program runs weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm June 18th to July 31st (except for July 2nd - July 3rd).  

New this year is Leadership Week running from August 3rd to August 7th and available to any who have registered for Sessions 1, 2 and/or 3 of Summer Serve 2015. 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.

What participants and parents said last year about Summer Serve:

“It made me realize I can make a difference.”
 
“The stuff you do no matter how little can make a big difference to someone out here in the world.”
 
“It helped me realize what good we can do if we all work in unison, united.”
 
“Giving our child the ability to not only stay active all summer through volunteering but also build friendships with older teens in a mentoring role was a fantastic opportunity.”
