Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Waupoos Family Farm is a great place to use your time and talents to serve others. Below are some of the ways you can volunteer at Waupoos:
High School Community Service
Are you a high school student looking to complete your required community service hours?
Waupoos is a great place to volunteer! The Farm Management Team oversees all student volunteers, assigning jobs and supervising their completion. Jobs for student volunteers include cleaning, maintenance, administrative tasks, and seasonal work such as gardening or snow removal. In the summer, student volunteers can also participate in facilitating activities for vacationing families.
