ORGANIZATION: Houston Food Bank

40TH ANNIVERSARY

Want to make a significant difference in our community and have a blast doing it? Join the Houston Food Bank Student Heroes Program for high school students and help lead the fight against hunger!

Student Hero volunteers gain training and experience while taking a leadership role in volunteer-based projects. During three sessions throughout the year: Spring (January-May), Summer (June-August) and Fall (September-December) Student Heroes will learn how to accomplish the following:

  • Train and oversee volunteers in various projects at the Houston Food Bank ensuring that volunteers have a meaningful experience
  • Coordinate and market a Food/School Supply Drive to help those in need in our community
  • Attend leadership and professional development workshops to develop skills
  • Understand hunger as a Southeast Texas issue and learn to measure the impact of their work. All volunteer projects have an impact measurement tied to the issues of hunger
