Volunteer Corps

​Youth & Teen Volunteer Corps

We will have our 2017 Kick-off meeting Wendesday, May 31 at the Teen Center located inside the Community Center.

This summer volunteer program is designed to cultivate responsibility in Thornton youths, ages 11-18. Our volunteers have experienced various outings across the state. They have volunteered at nursing homes, park clean-ups, trail building and special events.
