Volunteer individually or with a group (such as a club, church, company or school). As a volunteer, you can provide valuable services in a variety of ways — share your talents as a leader in an activity, or support us behind the scenes. Opportunities are available during the daytime, some evenings and weekends.
Direct Service Volunteers (interacting with our kids)
You must be at least 18 years old, have successfully completed our application process, passed background checks, supplied three references, attended an hour-long orientation, and committed to following all guidelines and procedures for working with kids. Examples of opportunities: provide a recreational activity for a small group of children/youths (such as dance, yoga, sports/recreational activities, gardening, art, crafts, music, cooking, drama and more), participate in a mentoring group and help with childcare at Foster Care and Adoption Support Nights.
We welcome groups to participate in many ways, especially with “done in a day” projects that help beautify our campus. Adult groups can provide light construction work, painting, landscaping, organizing and other activities that help support our maintenance and other areas. We also have opportunities for youth groups to participate in beautification projects and lighter landscaping jobs along with garden work. There are occasional opportunities for volunteer groups to serve a meal or plan seasonal parties/events for our children on campus. The Director of Community Outreach will follow up to review guidelines and planning in keeping with polices for such events. Groups can participate during regular weekday business hours, during one of our designated Saturday mornings each month or during a specifically planned date/time (provided a staff person is available and schedules permit).
