Local Community Programs, Service & Volunteering Opportunities for Students

Looking for ways to get involved? Keep a lookout for your school’s club fair!

It is always a good time to get involved on your high school campus. There are clubs for everyone ranging from coloring clubs, K-pop, volunteer/service, mentoring, equality, and many more. Also, all CTE programs have student organizations, as do all of the performing/visual arts and sports teams.

Phoenix Art Museum Teen Art Council
The 15-member Phoenix Art Museum Teen Art Council is a paid, arts-leadership opportunity for Valley high school students. As an ambassador of the Museum, you’ll collaborate with your fellow council members, under the guidance of our teen-programs coordinator, to develop community-oriented projects and events geared toward teens. You’ll also meet with staff and local artists to learn more about careers in the arts and museums.
Summer Volunteen Program
High school students between the ages of 14 and 17 years old are eligible to apply to the Summer Volunteen Program at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center. The Summer Volunteen Program offers an in-depth learning and leadership opportunity for teens interested in the health care industry. Many of our teens find the experiences invaluable and enjoy making a positive impact on patients, staff, and visitors.
Gilbert Mayor's Youth Advisory Committee
The Mayor's Youth Advisory Committee (MYAC) is a leadership opportunity where we teach you all about your community and give you opportunities to contribute and give feedback to Gilbert.

Students have a variety of occasions to practice what they’ve learned during group and individual interviews, social events and fundraisers.
