Participate in Sierra Service Project’s Weekends of Service for local youth groups! Each weekend starts on Friday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon. Weekend projects range from full group community service activities to standard repair projects. We may start and finish a project in a weekend, or our teams may be a part of a long-term project. In most cases youth teams are working with local nonprofits and not individual homeowners. This provides learning opportunities for youth to learn from the nonprofits about the work they are doing in the community and why it is important.
We hope to enroll between 25 and 45 volunteers total in each session. No group is too small – one youth and one adult make a group! All weekends are combined middle school and high school youth. Youth grades 6th through 12th are welcome to participate. The cost for these programs is only $110 per participant and includes all meals, lodging for two nights, tools, building materials and a t-shirt. Our commitment is that no youth should be excluded from participating due to lack of money; scholarships are available.

He would discover he was only partially correct, as he later wrote in his autobiography, “…I discovered […]
