Student Volunteer Opportunities:

Safe Harbor stands firm in our belief that the youth and young adults of today will shape & mold the future of generations to come. We believe our volunteer opportunities are a valuable source of truth and education on “real world” experiences. Our student volunteers are appreciated and valued. We want to increase awareness and help students learn that simple acts of giving, caring, and sharing make a difference in the lives of others, especially the less fortunate. We believe strongly in the act of serving others.
