Does your registered non-profit (501-C 3) organization want to advertise volunteer opportunities available for teens? Shorecrest and Shorewood high schools can help.

Students at both high schools must meet a minimum 40-hour volunteer graduation requirement to connect with the community. Community Service offices at both schools:
  • list eligible events on our online Community Service pages; 
  • include events in emails about Community service opportunities; 
  • use posters advertising your event around the high school buildings. 

If you have an upcoming event or project, you can maximize your reach by:
  • Submitting a request at least four weeks in advance of your event (six to eight weeks is preferred); 
  • Mailing or attaching any posters or flyers available (jpeg for electronic postings); 

Neither high school is available to:
  • screen volunteers; 
  • gather groups of volunteers for you; 
  • forecast how many students will sign up for your event; 
  • send an email about a single event; 
  • guarantee that all students who sign up will follow through. 

In your email about your event, please include:
  • Name of your organization and/or event, with your website; 
  • Dates and times when volunteerism would be performed; 
  • Address where project/tasks will be performed; 
  • Description of duties, including any perks; 
  • Primary contact person with phone and email. Students will contact you, not the high school community service office, if they are interested; 
  • Any posters or flyers available. 

Details may be submitted to
  • Suzanne.Monson@shorelineschools.org at Shorecrest, and
  • Marianne.Stephens@shorelineschools.org at Shorewood.
