The purpose of the Silver Cord program, known as the Teal Cord Program at Walnut Creek, is to encourage volunteerism and allow students to experience the joy of giving back to the community. Volunteering can provide a constructive use of time, foster the exploration of career interests, support youth seeking employment and college admission, and give new graduates the confidence to serve in leadership roles after high school. All high school students are encouraged to participate regardless of their GPA, rigor of course study, artistic, or athletic ability.
Students can review guidelines and complete the online application to acquire their account. This can be found on the WDMCS Community Education website.
