Applecorps Volunteer Program

(14 and 15 year olds)

The AppleCorps Volunteer (ACV) program is open to the 14 and 15 year old members of the Applewood community. Like Applewood, AppleCorps is based on our belief in community service and volunteerism. AppleCorps is designed to support young adolescents in becoming strong future leaders and it helps them to become more independent, explore their interest in working with young children, to develop skills and strengthen talents, to take pride in their achievements, and to have a positive impact as a member of the community. ACV’s are assigned to one of the classrooms in our program. They are given opportunities to interact with young children, ask questions about child development, and learn what it means to be an early childhood professional.
