You are part of a team of volunteers and will be equipped with supplies and ideas for how to engage with the kids. Games, toys, and art activities are provided, but we always encourage volunteers to bring their own ideas as well. You will not have one-on-one contact with a child and should always avoid that type of situation.[/accordian_item][accordian_item accordion_active=”no” accordion_title=”How does it work?” icon=”Choose Icon”] When our teams are scheduling upcoming workshops or events, we send out an email to our list of child care volunteers. You can then accept or decline that opportunity, depending upon your schedule. Whenever possible, volunteers should arrive 30 minutes before the start of the class. Volunteers are welcome to join us for a free meal, when it is offered, before the class as well. [/accordian_item][accordian_item accordion_active=”no” accordion_title=”What is the commitment level?” icon=”Choose Icon”] Ideally, a volunteer would help out for the duration of the series. For example, some parenting workshops are one night a week for three weeks. However, if this won’t work into your calendar, we can be flexible. You can stay on the volunteer list as long as you like.
