Mayor Coleen J. Seng will attend the graduation ceremony for the Youth S.E.R.V.E program at 2 p.m. Friday, March 16 at the Park Teen Center, 855 South 8th Street. The Youth Service Education and Recreation Volunteer Experience is a pilot program that provides training for students in sixth through eighth grades. The 12 initial graduates will be certified to volunteer at day camp programs for elementary school students offered through the Parks and Recreation Department.
Students who expressed an interest in volunteering with the Parks and Recreation Department were invited to submit written applications for the program. S.E.R.V.E. participants are trained in leadership, communication skills, teamwork, goal-setting and safety practices through a day camp/work experience under the guidance and supervision of trained recreation staff.
