Before contacting any organization you find listed, please read our Tips For Volunteers and the Safety and Disclaimer Statement at the bottom of this page. Make sure that you have your schools required community service form to document completed service hours. Organizations, please contact the Douglas County Youth Initiative to submit your information.
