S.H.OUT-U.C. offers a wide range of resources and volunteer opportunities that give middle/high school and college students (12-24) the best volunteer experience.
S.H.OUT-U.C. accepts applications on an on-going basis from youth looking to serve their communities, complete required high school community service hours, supplement their college applications, or to get involved.
Our success has always been a result of the involvement of our citizens, community leaders and business owners who care about the future of Union County youth.
