Spend your Summer with the Volunteer Center

What are your plans this summer?  We have just the thing for you! The Volunteer Center will host Ready Set Serve, a one-week summer experience for teens.

Ready Set Serve (RSS) is a unique training program designed to help prepare the next generation for leadership roles in their communities.  Through a state-of-the-art curriculum that includes both classroom instruction and experiential training, RSS teaches middle- and high-school-age youth a broad array of leadership skills applicable to community service.  The ultimate purpose of RSS is to help create stronger communities - and a stronger nation - by igniting in young people the ability and the desire to make meaningful, lifelong contributions to their communities. 

This interactive, state-of-the-art curriculum, developed by the Center for Creative Leadership, is designed to provide the caliber of leadership training typically available only to corporate executives and government leaders.  It features a challenging series of lessons and exercises including community needs analysis, goal setting, team building, project planning, decision making, and other dynamic leadership skills.  The course culminates in community service projects - created and implemented by the student participants - and a final graduation ceremony.
