Gemma's Angels offers opportunities for those individuals who need community service for a variety of reasons--for a criminal offense, for school, for scouting, etc. Generally, you must be age 18 or over to perform community service. However, under certain circumstances, such as for scouting, that age limit is flexible but we will discuss that with a parent or guardian.

Complete the form below and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can.  If you have any questions, you can email us at info@gemmasangels.org or call us at (717) 298-0150 extension 5.
