Volunteer Houston believes that the success of the nonprofit community is defined by its next generation. It is our responsibility to help build that generation by providing programs and service opportunities, in partnership with the nonprofit community, that engage and transform not only the student, but the nonprofit agency and the communities they serve.
The vision of our high school program it to be the catalyst for making service and community engagement a part of every student’s life while teaching essential skills that will help in getting them job or college ready.
Our paid summer internship programs produce students who know how to use their personal strengths and talents to benefit those around them and instill in them the importance of volunteerism and community leadership.We manage two internship programs in the Houston area: ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program and Shell Nonprofit Internship Program.
