Teen Volunteer Programs

Volunteer at your neighborhood park and help the recreation leaders with duties such as crafts, sports field preparation, office work, Special Olympics programs and more.

Teens must be 12 years of age, willing to follow through on a volunteer commitment and interested in helping the community.


The award-winning "Teens in Lakewood Care" (TLC) program needs teens to help provide free home maintenance to Lakewood residents who are physically unable to do the work themselves. TLC volunteers work with the Lakewood Jaycees on selected Saturday mornings to wash windows, clean up yards, paint and other home-related chores. If you'd like to help with this worthwhile program or with any other volunteer activity, please call 562-429-7472.
