Each night of an event for parents, such as a workshop or support group, you spend time with their kids. This removes the barriers of finding /affording child care, making it easier for guardians to learn and connect with others. The free daycare could not be offered if it was not for wonderful volunteers.

 

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.

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.

 

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.

No training is required for this position. All volunteers must:

  • Be 14 years of age or older, (unless you come highly recommended by a teacher or other reference).
  • Complete the application process.
  • Must pass a child abuse background check.
  • Must be willing to provide references if asked.
