Volunteer Opportunities!

Thurston County Animal Services has many volunteer opportunities, such as Kennel Helpers, Office work and much more!  Maybe you could even foster an animal.  Give them a call at (360)352-2510 or email them at volunteer@jointanimalservice.org

Thurston County Food Bank is a great place to help out. Volunteer times are also available during school breaks! If you are a student that needs class / school community service hours give them a call at (360) 352-8597.


Career Center

FAFSA - Seniors if you are planning to apply for FREE money for post high school ​education you need to complete the FAFSA.  The money is NOW available to apply for.  If you have questions or need help with your FAFSA sign up for the financial aid help night on Oct 18th.  Sign ups are online now! Check the Senior Page.

The Career Center has many guests throughout the year, especially college reps during these first few months of school.  These opportunities are provided for students to meet with someone who has the answers to all your questions about a specific school, post high school education option or career.  Always remember to check with your teacher before coming to the Career Center.  These guests pay attention to which students attend their presentation, so it’s always a good idea to come meet the representative if you can.  The calendar is updated often, add the OHS Career Center google calendar to your planner to keep up with the schedule and plan ahead to attend the presentations you are most interested in learning about.  (Boelts/Harper)

 

Visits are in the Career Center, unless noted.

Lunch visits mean the representative is available to meet both lunches.
