Youth Volunteer Engagement - Meaningful Opportunities for 5-17

HandsOn Miami has recently installed a Youth Advisory Council - a youth Board of Directors consisting of 14 teenagers representing 11 different schools across Miami-Dade County. Their goal for 2015 is to inspire, equip, and mobilize 500 of their peers (ages 5-17 years of age) in active and meaningful hands-on volunteer service to make Miami a better place by supporting local nonprofit organizations.

If accelerated, HandsOn Miami's Youth Advisory Council will be able to implement their plans for coordinating and managing a series of youth friendly volunteer opportunities that will be youth-driven, ensuring meaningful learning experiences while also allowing students to earn much-desired community service hours.
