2019 Nonprofit Project Site Application

Project sites are asked to provide a defined group project that would be appropriate for groups of 5-6 or 10-15 youth to complete within a 3-5 hour period (these numbers are flexible), and to provide all necessary materials and working space to accomplish that task.  At least one adult leader from the SVP or VOICE program staff will participate with the students during each project.  Please be creative and provide a specific project that will be interesting and challenging for the youth volunteers. Activities that provide contact with the people the volunteers are serving through their project are the most rewarding, but not always necessary. The program's dates are generally mid-June to mid-August.  

Students will need a brief orientation on the purpose of the project, and also need to be informed of your organizationís mission and structure. Please have a volunteer coordinator available to provide this information and answer any questions the volunteers may have each time we volunteer - we serve over 300 youth, which means that even if we come every week to your site, there is a good chance that there will be volunteers who are new to your project!  When volunteers gain knowledge about the purpose and value of their work, they reflect more deeply on their experience.  If you need help thinking about an appropriate project, please call Brittany Aguilar (206) 275-7743 or e-mail
