Get Involved

For 20 years, Teens In Public Service has thrived with the help of our community patrons and volunteers. We need volunteers to support our programmed events, training days, and fundraising initiatives so that we may remain a sustainable resource for our stakeholders.

We greatly appreciate all TIPS alumni, future interns, and community members who contribute their time to our organization. If you are interested in volunteering at one of our upcoming events, please contact Linda Tessier at to discuss volunteer opportunities with Teens In Public Service.
