Introducing, the Volunteer in Place program! VIP is an online volunteer program for teens in grades 7-12 to give back to the community and earn volunteer hours right from your home.

Here's how it works:

  1. Create an account on Beanstack and register for Volunteer in Place.
  2. Explore each activity badge and read instructions on how to complete a variety of service projects. 
  3. Earn activity badges, give back to the community, and receive service hours.

Summer Volunteer Squad

Summer Volunteer Squad


We have made the difficult decision to not offer the Summer Volunteer Squad opportunity for the summer 2020 season.

If you are looking to volunteer this summer, please check out our other service opportunities on our Teen Volunteer page at ahml.info/teens/volunteer. If you have any questions or need help earning service hours, please contact us at teens@ahml.info.

We hope to see you at SVS next year!


Looking for a fun way to give back to the community during your summer break? Join a Summer Volunteer Squad!

Reading, gaming, crafting—whatever your interest, there is a squad for you! 

Squads meet once a week for about eight weeks throughout the summer.
