Join Us In Person This Summer!

We are excited to announce SSP’s 2024 summer program plans! Youth, young adult, and adult volunteers will work with these partner communities:

We will be hosting volunteer groups for week-long sessions between mid-late June and early August (exact dates tba).

Participants do not need any experience with home repair work or power tools to volunteer – but we are happy to put your skills to good use if you do have knowledge in these areas!

We look forward to serving with and learning alongside you next summer.

Program Schedule

TBA soon!

Who Can Serve?

Volunteers of many ages can participate – no experience required! Traditionally, our program is youth-centered. In recent years, we have added more intergenerational options for young adult and adult groups who would like their own service-learning experience.

  • Middle Schoolers:
    • Incoming 6th grade through incoming 9th grade
    • Can participate in any middle school, combined, or intergenerational sessions
  • High Schoolers:
    • Incoming 9th grade through graduating 12th grade
    • Can participate in any high school, combined, or intergenerational sessions
    • Note: 18-year-olds who will have recently graduated high school are welcome to participate in youth-focused sessions. However, they will be required to complete additional paperwork required for adults volunteering with minors due to California law.
  • Young Adults:
    • Ages 18-22
    • Can participate in any intergenerational sessions
    • Are not expected to lead youth on work teams
  • Adult Volunteers:
    • Age 23 and older
    • Adults may either participate as:
      • A counselor responsible for leading youth at youth-focused sessions, OR
      • Part of an intergenerational group (no direct youth leadership responsibilities)
