Description: 
The three-acre Youth Villages-Germaine Lawrence Campus, located on a quiet, tree-lined street in a residential neighborhood of Arlington, Massachusetts, provides mental and behavioral health treatment and education to girls ages 12-22 with serious emotional and behavioral issues.
 
All programs are accredited by The Joint Commission and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. The organization’s goal is to help girls learn to live successfully at home and in the community.
 
Volunteer tasks will include physical plant refresh, painting, landscaping, and other needs, to be determined closer to the day.
 
The site requests female volunteers only, due to the trauma history of some of the residents in the program. Ample street parking is available on site.
