We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who want to make a difference. Volunteering at Camp Laurel is a great way for students to develop behavior management skills, gain valuable experience working with high-risk populations, and to grow professionally and personally.
When you volunteer with The Laurel Foundation it will be because you want to change the life of a child, but what you will discover is that your life will also be changed tremendously and you will grow in ways you never thought possible. Through extensive trainings and intensive volunteer experiences, The Laurel Foundation is not only changing the lives of at-risk children affected by HIV/AIDS, transgender youth and other at-risk youth populations, but developing dynamic leaders who are using their learned skills to better their communities and to change the world. By volunteering with The Laurel Foundation, you will become part of a vast network of creative, passionate and talented individuals working in a variety of socially dynamic professions, but most importantly you will become part of a community that feels like family. This is an excellent opportunity for any students in the fields of social work, psychology, child development, health, outdoor recreations, and many other areas to gain more experience and develop tools for not just how to help others grow, but also themselves.
