Volunteers Outreach Involvement Community Events & Services

About

VOICES is a community service group of high school students from the Belmont/San Carlos area. We participate in a variety of different volunteer activities in Belmont, San Carlos, and around the Bay Area.

Membership

Each spring applicants are selected for the group to replace graduating seniors. VOICES accepts applications from students who are Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors and Seniors in the spring. Once applicants are accepted, they remain active in the group until they graduate high school.

Commitment

VOICES meets three Mondays a month to discuss and plan upcoming events and activities. Members can expect to participate in at least one volunteer activity per month. Events are usually scheduled during the weekends so as not to interfere with classes.

Retreats

In addition to volunteer events and weekly meetings, the group also has retreats occasionally for team building and to reward members for all of their hard work.

Supervision

VOICES is a Belmont Parks & Recreation Department Program. Supervision of the group is provided by Youth and Teen Recreation Specialist Sinead Cunningham (650) 595-7447 and Teen Librarian Cassandra Black (650) 591-8286.
