FITREE LEARNING kicks off its Fall 2023 internship program for high school students. Our organization is certified to approve service hours towards The President’s Volunteer Service Award.
FITREE LEARNING is pleased to offer students the opportunity to earn the President’s Volunteer Service Award, which was established in 2003 to recognize the important role of volunteers in America’s strength and national identity. Though these internship opportunities, high school and middle school students are able to apply critical leadership, communication and other foundational skills learned through FITREE LEARNING’s after-school program to positively impact their communities and inspire others to take action.
