Many children and young adults are too young to volunteer in our programs. While we deeply admire their philanthropic spirit, we do not have the ability to facilitate their volunteer activities. Occasionally, we do make exceptions for youth who volunteer in conjunction with an adult guardian or mentor.

Please note that Hidden Villa cannot offer room or board in exchange for volunteer service.
