Teens working on a volunteer planting project 

This summer volunteer program is designed to cultivate responsibility in Thornton youths, ages 11-18.  Our volunteers have experienced various outings across the state.  They have volunteered at nursing homes, park clean-ups, trail building and special events.

This program meets at the Thornton Commuity Center. We will provide transportation to and from the Community Center and Supervision while on the volunteer project.

"It creates such great self-esteem and provokes responsibility; it's great."
