Teen Leader Volunteer Program

TEEN LEADERS WITH AMANDA OSBURN

The program provides leadership training and opportunities to develop leadership skills and confidence throughout the term.  Teens can choose to assist teachers in the classroom or work closely with PAGE Board members and volunteers.  Leadership skills include planning, adaptability, communication, team building, and conflict management.

Teen volunteers also find the experience rewarding because they get to pay forward the unique learning experience they received at TSSP, contribute to a community that appreciates what often separates them from others, and enjoy sharing the love of learning with younger children.

Not all our teen volunteers have been previous students in TSSP.

If you are age 13 to 17 and are interested in the Teen Leader Volunteer Program, prior to each term…

  1.  review the policy and agreement,
  2.  complete the application and email to teenadvocate@supersaturday.org,
  3.  and register online through the class registration portal.  After 10/1/22 the portal is closed and registrations must be processed manually by the registrar who can be reached at registration@supersaturday.org.
  4.  If your school uses an online platform to track service hours, you can find TSSP listed on those below.  (If TSSP is not yet on the platform your school uses, let us know to add it.)

All teens participating in the program will be presented a Certificate of Completion at the end of the term.  Teens who sign up for one shift, morning or afternoon, will complete 19 service hours (15 plus 4 in training), while those who do both shifts complete 34 service hours.  Participation in the Teen Leader Volunteer Program is limited.  Applications will be approved on a case by case basis.  Mandatory preparation training takes place on the Saturday before term, and mandatory wrap-up training takes place on the Saturday following the term.  A $25 lab fee is due prior to the start of training.
