TreeHouse Volunteers

TreeHouse Community Volunteer Program

The TreeHouse Community Volunteer Program focuses on fulfilling the needs of TreeHouse in the communities we serve while providing meaningful engagement opportunities for the volunteers themselves. The TreeHouse Community Volunteer Program seeks to create the best overall experience for the volunteer through adequate preparation, resources, support, and infrastructure that will in return make the greatest impact on the TreeHouse youth, staff, and communities.
