Important Info: Teens do not have to help during Prep Week in order to volunteer for VBS, but every teen MUST attend a MANDATORY Training Session in order to participate! The training session is offered on Friday, July 8th from 12-1pm and Saturday, July 9th from 9-10am. Location for each session will be in New Legacy.

On Friday, July 15th we ask that our volunteers stay until 1:30pm (at the latest) to help us clean and take down the decorations in the gym and classrooms. We are planning a party for all of our teen volunteers to thank them for all of their hard work! It will most likely be an off-campus event from 1:30-3pm. Once the details are finalized, this website will be updated and an email will be sent out.

Service Hours: Teens will be asked to sign in every day, staff will use the attendance sheet to keep track of service hours. During Prep Week, up to 3 service hours are available each day, for a possible total of 12 service hours. During VBS, teens can earn up to 4 hours Monday - Thursday and 5 hours on Friday (with the extra hour of clean up), for a total of 21 hours. Teens must bring their own forms and service hour logs to receive credit for service hours. The only exception is if a teen's school or organization uses an online form. In this case, use mbyers@stmarkevangelist.com as the contact email address.
