Summer youth volunteering opportunities and events!

Summer break is finally here! Now is the perfect time for kids to take part in volunteering across our community. Kids: not only will you be helping important local nonprofits, but you'll be almost guaranteed to grow personally, learning about empathy and building your sense of community. Here in the Greater Omaha area, there are numerous volunteering opportunities that cater specifically to youth aged 5 and older, allowing you to contribute your time, energy, and talents while having a fun-filled summer experience.
