Fun and comfortable workplace

For high school students looking to get their minimum 40 hours of volunteer. You will get a total of 150 hours or so, unless things have changed.
However, they don't always count the hours individually. There was one or two days where an orientation was taking place and you had the option to skip that day of work. While many people did, I went to work for the days. However, my hours were still deducted in the end.
Volunteering to help out their summer camp program can get tiring towards the last couple of weeks as the children will drain out your energy. However, it is overall a great experience, you are able to learn how to manage multiple people, work as a team with your peer volunteers and make new friends.
The workplace culture was rather nice, friendly. Though at times you could feel left out in your team- it is not as professional as it could be.
