As more and more schools are requiring community service as part of their curriculums we would like to make you aware of Where to Turn volunteer opportunities to help students meet these requirements.

In addition to these opportunities we will be posting additional opportunities throughout the year to our website at www.where-to-turn.org. These postings will also contain opportunities from any organization that sends us information. Below also find some opportunities that your school may want to participate in.


Snow Shoveling for Seniors

Students register and are assigned a senior citizen within walking distance of their home. The student adopts the senior for the winter and commits to shoveling the sidewalk and path to the front door of the senior each time it snows. Students receive a minimum of 10 hours of community service (more if it snows more than 10 times)

Re-Gifting for a Good Cause

Students coordinate the collection of unwanted gifts at their school. Where to Turn will arrange regular pick up of the gifts collected. Community service will be awarded to students who coordinate the effort based on hours submitted by their schools. All collected gifts will be distributed to needy families with the balance being sold at an annual flea market.

Graffiti Removal and Weekly Cleanups.

We run weekly graffiti, park and beach cleanups

Where to Turn will also coordinate graffiti removal, park, beach and cemetery cleanups with any school that would like to supply volunteers. Hours will be awarded based on the length of the outings

Prom Dresses for All

Where to Turn is collecting prom dresses which will be dry cleaned and redistributed to less fortunate young ladies prior to next year’s prom season. If your school would like to act as a collection point we will arrange regular pick ups.

School Bloggers

We are looking for a few students to represent their schools by posting upcoming events or achievements on our website. Each participating school will be given a forum and an authorization code so that the updates can be done right at the school.

Easy Hours

Students can receive ˝ community service for each used cell phone they turn in (minimum of 10)

We will also coordinate and publicize any community activity in which a school chooses to take part in.

Feel free to call us at 718-966-6531 if you have any questions or visit our site at www.where-to-turn for additional details and additional volunteer and grant opportunities.
