H20 Summer Service Opportunities

The H20 “Help to Others” service club is an integral part of our school and city. Many people who are in high school fondly remember going to the summer service camp, which is a two-week-long camp for middle schoolers that helps people and organizations all throughout greater Cleveland, from the Food Bank to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. And summer is not the only time the organization is active: throughout the whole rest of the year there are numerous opportunities for helping out around the city both for middle and high schoolers.

But after students are in high school, they often struggle with fitting in these service activities during their busy school days. This year however, summer services for high schoolers will be just as available as those during the rest of the year. So if you do not have an especially packed summer schedule, you should definitely consider participating in one of the many things that H20 is going to be offering.

These new opportunities will include volunteering as a camp counselor for Camp Invention during the second week of the summer (which is 40 service hours), or serving as a speaker for the Lakewood Historical Society (which is around 30 service hours). And if you are unavailable for consecutive days during the break, you can still do things such as the Westerly grocery deliveries once a month, help out at the fresh food market on Thursdays, and much more.

If you want to know more about the service opportunities, you can see a full list of them and sign up at the H20 office, which is right outside of the cafeteria.
