We have limited seating. If you have signed up and are unable to attend please remove yourself or contact HOC ASAP so someone on the waiting list can fill your seat.

If you would like to volunteer with your children (ages 6 to 17) include the name and ages of your children when you sign up below. We only have room for adults to attend these sessions, children should not attend. Only one parent per family is required to attend the orientation. The parent that plans to sign up and attend most of the projects should attend.
