Youth Volunteering

In April the Volunteer Center of Story County and Iowa State University Student Activities Center recognized the volunteer efforts of young people in Story County. Click here for information about each recipient. 


We encourage young people to volunteer throughout the year. Summer is a great time to volunteer, but getting started can be difficult. We assembled a Youth Volunteer Guide to help generate some ideas. You can find a PDF copy at the bottom of this page.
