Are you in high school? Students 16 and older are most welcome. If you are not yet 16, we ask that you bring along a participating adult to work as well. We have had a large number of younger students and find that a few extra adult hands are most helpful.

If your volunteer service has been recommended to you for any violation of law, you must be screened by either ACS (Alternative Community Service) at Volunteer Fairfax or by Opportunities, Alternatives and Resources at http://www.oarfairfax.org
