What is Project Youth?

The Fall 2024 event is on Friday, October 25th, 2024. If you are interested in helping lead the event, please contact one of the program directors!

Volunteers inspire fifth and sixth-grade students from Title I schools to achieve a higher education by giving them a glimpse of campus life. At this annual event, volunteers lead these young students on a campus tour and to breakout sessions that teach them about some of the amazing opportunities for learning ahead of them. Then, all of the students and volunteers will gather together for a "Power Rally," which is a high-energy, closing assembly. Our event for this coming school year is scheduled for October 25th, 2024.

How do I get involved?

If you are interested in planning the event, please apply to be a Program Director for Project Youth at this link. Time commitment is flexible! Contact the current program directors by phone or email with any questions.

Student Volunteers:
If you are interested in volunteering at our Fall 2024 event on Friday, October 25th from 8:30-12:30, please fill out this survey. You can also email for updates and details.

If your school is interested in attending the event, please email us at about openings for the coming year.

Volunteer Commitment:

Event planning happens throughout Fall and Winter semesters. A few volunteers involved in planning commit 1-3 hours weekly during Fall and Winter semesters at any time during the week.

Volunteer group leaders will need to attend a separate one-hour training and have availability during the day of the event from 8:00 a.m.-12:20 p.m. We need lots of group leaders--invite a friend to volunteer with you!


Please complete this mandatory 25-minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with the children.

Mandatory In-Person Training for all Volunteers — This will take approximately 30 minutes and there will be snacks provided. You will only need to attend 1 of the 4 trainings.

If you know of anyone that would like to sign up as well, invite them! There will be pizza and free t-shirts for all volunteers. Thank you again for volunteering!
