Volunteer High School Community Leaders Needed! - Get Community Service Hours!

Do you have an idea for change you want to see in your neighborhood, community or school? Do you want to get involved in activism and community service but don't know how? Are you looking for community service experience and leadership development?

The Action Leadership Program with Students (ALPS) is now looking for high schoolers who want to serve their community and have an idea for change they want to see! In ALPS, young people will work on short-term (8-12 week) community impact projects with peers. The focus is creating a positive community impact, and ALSO helping students develop leadership, community and problem-solving skills with the guidance of a trained adult leadership coach!

Youth will register, choose a community impact project, and work with a coach to plan and execute their project.

Projects can be in any area of your choosing. In the past, students have designed projects around mental health, climate change, health & fitness education, Asian American health advocacy, anti-bullying, etc. If you don't have an idea, schedule an orientation session to learn more and brainstorm some of your passions!

If you and a group of friends have a community project idea, ALPS can help you bring it to life. Get valuable leadership, professional and life skills while getting community service hours!

Get started by...

  • Brainstorming some observations you and your peers have made in your neighborhood. Are there members in your community that could benefit from your help? Are there issues that exist you want to address? Do you want to serve, educate, advocate or inform?
  • Decide on a topic/problem/area you want to create a service project in.
  • Reach out to us at with your project idea.
  • Get paired with a leadership coach to bring your idea to life!
  • Get community service hours, leadership and professional skills, and real-world experience!

Other facts:

  • No long-term commitment! You can decide how long your project will be (max 12 weeks).
  • Choice and creativity are encouraged- you (and your peers) identify and decide what project/topic you want to explore.
  • Flexible project planning makes it easy for you and your leadership coach to create a coaching schedule that works for your lives.
  • You gain community service opportunities in areas of your interest!

*Project planning and coaching sessions are mostly done via Zoom. Sessions can be done in-person if preferred and is convenient for students/coaches. Project tasks and other related activities will also be arranged with coach and will likely be off-site, as these projects are real-world, hands-on, IN-community projects.
