Student League – The Student League was created to honor families who have been active in helping the social service community and who want to pass that legacy onto their children. Selected student members, all in ninth grade, are introduced to the social service community through the mission and services of our agency. The students gain practical leadership experience and develop a personal commitment to volunteering by participating in this “hands on” curriculum. Students must be in ninth grade in order to apply to be a participant in the Student League program. To learn more about the Student League program and the application process, please email Volunteer@heartlandfamilyservice.org or call 402-552-7418.
