NEWAHEC is collaborating with the Manitowoc County Prevention Coalition and the Lakeshore Health Care Alliance to coordinate a short-term, summer volunteer opportunity program for students 15-18 years old.  Students will be required to apply for a position, interview for available volunteer opportunities, attend an orientation, and complete a job skills training as part of the volunteer program, student will then be placed at a community agency to complete their service work. The program will be 12 weeks in length and will provide students the opportunity to receive at least 25 hours of volunteer service.

The purpose is to provide 20 to 25 students the opportunity to gain new skills, develop good work habits, learn about various careers and have fun. This will also help students meet their required volunteer hours needed for graduation.

Summer can be a great opportunity for youth to engage in projects that will build their skills, but also allow them to feel more connected to their community. High Schools require students to complete 25 hours of volunteer service. Each year High Schools have mentioned how often students struggle to complete these hours.

This program will target youth in  both Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties who are 15-18 years old. We will seek to work with at least 30 non-profit organizations to provide volunteer opportunities for between 20 to 25 students.

NEWAHEC has a strong partnership with the high school’s counselors due to our partnerships with schools to provide health care education and prevention efforts. We will work with the counselors at each of the  High Schools to distribute the information for the program.
