Service Over Self – Summer 2019 Opportunities

Service Over Self – Summer Opportunities

From Choose901 Blog

SOS hosts weeklong camps throughout the summer for groups of junior high and high school students to volunteer to replace roofs in the neighborhoods of Binghampton and Orange Mound. Registration is now open for their 2019 Summer Camp season

Groups can either register for SOS Binghampton or for SOS114 in Orange Mound. Camp tuition is $365 per person for the week in Binghampton and $320 per person in Orange Mound. The fee covers housing, meals, materials, tools, programming, and an SOS camp t-shirt. Volunteers stay on-site at Service Over Self’s main campus on Poplar Ave. if serving in Binghampton and the Heights, or at Union Avenue Baptist Church if serving in Orange Mound.

Each camp week runs Sunday through Saturday. In addition to the time spent at worksites, campers also participate in chapel and group devotional and have blocks of free time as well as a designated afternoon during which they are encouraged to go and explore Memphis.

Learn more about programming, see a sample schedule, read camper testimonials, and get answers to frequently asked questions at sosmemphis.org/camps.

SOS is also hiring college students to work with volunteer groups as part of the Summer Staff.

There are about 50 positions that need to be filled including team leaders, construction managers, photographers & videographers, camp coordinators, and more. Staff members are paid $250 per week plus room and board. See a full list of available positions and apply here.
