SOUTH OKLAHOMA CITY – A local university is offering teens a way to earn community service hours over the summer.

Oklahoma City Community College is kicking off summer with fun activities to keep bored teens busy.

Teens, ages 13-17, can now volunteer to work during summer sports camps at OCCC. Counselors in Training is a new program for teens to volunteer while earning community service hours.

Each student must attend mandatory trainings that cover topics including character development, leadership skills, team building, supervision of children and basic first aid.

After successfully completing training, students will be scheduled to volunteer in one of four summer camp programs.

All enrollments, for sports camps and College for Kids classes, are due by 5 p.m. on the Thursday prior to the Monday start date of that class.
