Get Involved

Teens In Public Service has thrived with the help of our community patrons and volunteers since it began in 1997. We need volunteers to support our programmed events, training days, and fundraising initiatives so that the summer internship program 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. Volunteers keep TIPS running and provide an invaluable service in supporting the operations which help us develop teen leaders!
