We offer 2 types of opportunities: School-Shed Programs and Volunteer Opportunities.

To participate in SCHOOL-SHED PROGRAMS or VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES, complete the following steps:
STEP 1) Create an account. This establishes your login and your password and provides important information that help us manage our tuition-free programs. All adults require their own account. We will never share your information.
* Add current school-shed students to your account. (This only applies to families with students enrolled at schools in the Hoover cluster in City Heights.) To add your student(s) to your account, you must have their School ID Number.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be a managed user and have an adult submit their application on their behalf as there are legal acknowledgments within the applications. Please reference the link below to correctly add your youth volunteer to your account and submit an application on their behalf.
