Youth & Teen Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout the year, many different volunteer opportunities are available for students at The Holden Arboretum. Get involved and enjoy the feeling of giving back by helping at one of our special events, regular upkeep of The Holden Arboretum’s gardens, or participating at in our Junior Volunteer program. Helping at Holden also provides the opportunity to earn student service hours, or build your resume for college applications.
