Calling All Youth-Aged Soccer Players!!!


We need Youth Volunteers (aged 16+) to act as mentors at each of the two special needs camps. The goal is to have a 1:1 ratio of counselors to child.

This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in making a positive impact in your community while earning your community service hours for your high school diploma.
