Summer Enrichment Camp Volunteer Application Form
Thank you for your interest in working with HPRP. Welcome!

The Hyde Park Refugee Project is looking for middle school, high school, and college volunteers to help run summer camp for local refugee and immigrant children, ages 4 to 14. We are looking for energetic leaders who will be excited to run special camp programming, and be great role models while earning many hours of community service, and job-training skills! Please indicate below a commitment to volunteer one to four weeks of the month-long program.

APPLICATIONS ARE ROLLING, AND INTERNS WILL BE SELECTED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-REVIEWS BASIS, so we recommend applying ASAP. This does not mean the earliest intern applications will all automatically be accepted, but that it will be beneficial to apply before all four intern spots are taken.
