Did you know that youth under the age of 18 volunteered more than ???? hours of time with HSVTC to trails last year? Whether coming out with their parents for a day or on a week-long Youth Vacation in the summer, youth are giving back to hiking trails all across the state.

We encourage kids ages 10 and up to participate in our events and hiking trips. Those under 14 must be accompanied by a supervising adult and anyone under 18 must present a signed Parental Consent Form. After five work parties, volunteers earn their very own green hard hat with their name on it. Teens can earn up to eight community service hours each day.

Here is a sampling of HSVTC’s Youth Volunteer Opportunities.
