Throughout the school year, Junior Volunteers or "JVs" as we call them, assist our staff with running the after school program. They help prep snack time, help kids with homework and take care of our facility. They are a huge help! JVs also receive homework and tutoring help if needed and quickly become part of the Shack family as staff invest time and energy in their success. During the summer months, JVs take on even more responsibility running the summer camp program. Although they work hard during those months, JVs enjoy special "JV time" and fun field trips specifically designed for them. They also regularly take part in service learning projects such as home repairs, trail making and gardening.
