Volunteer Opportunities

In response to the increase of COVID-19 cases in our community and to protect our youth, staff, and volunteers, we are unable to host volunteers at this time.

Please don't hesitate to complete an inquiry or reach out with any questions in the meantime. We are continually exploring more ways to engage volunteers virtually and would love to hear your ideas. Thank you for your understanding.

As a licensed child care facility and to assure the safety of our youth, all volunteer applicants must be at least 21 years of age (28 years for mentors) and will undergo a background check. We are unable to accept court ordered community work service volunteers.
