SONY DSCVolunteer opportunities abound at the summer LightHouse sessions.

We have sessions at all three community sites and two of our school-based sites, and they could use anyone from teenagers willing to read with children a couple times a week  to people willing to lead a craft or sponsor a one-time outing.

Here are a few of the suggestions from our team. If you are interested, please contact Carolyn Hammond at

For the Travis St. location:

  • Reading Partners
  • Basic Sewing Lesson
  • Drama Lessons
  • Yoga or Zumba Lessons
  • Soccer, baseball or tennis basic skills clinic
  • Ice Cream social (preferably on July 3)
  • Etiquette Workshop for Girls and Boys
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Game Day (come play your favorite game with our youth)
  • Sponsor a movie or skating trip

For the school-based sites (Westwood Elementary and Booker T Washington Middle School):

  • A water day – sponsor one of the inflatable water slides or host a sno cone/ice cream party.
  • Sponsor lunch for middle school students at BTW (they make their own lunch for the last two weeks of the program), or you could teach the kids how to cook
