Help Impact the Life of a Child

Why Volunteer?

The children we serve at The Children’s Center Utah are seeking the tools and skills to learn how to listen to adults, manage their emotions, play with peers, and succeed in school. By volunteering with us, you can positively impact a child’s development and mental health by assisting our Therapeutic Preschool Specialists in the Therapeutic Preschool Program, volunteering at events that support the work we all do here at The Children’s Center Utah, or even support our Therapeutic Preschool Specialists by cleaning toys and group rooms after hours.

We wouldn’t be able to help the many families and children here at The Children’s Center Utah without the support and dedication of our volunteers!


On the second Friday of every month, a group of explorers from Thanksgiving Point will join our Therapeutic Preschool groups. Their Learning and Engagement team will teach children about bugs, animals, dinosaurs, and more!


The Bennion Center at the University of Utah sent 20 volunteers for an MLK Day Service Project! Volunteers created Valentine's Day Sensory Boxes that will be distributed to the kids in the Therapeutic Preschool Program.


"Being a volunteer in the Therapeutic Preschool Program at The Children’s Center Utah provided me with the opportunity to interact with children who have unique needs and see the Therapeutic Preschool Specialists respond to each child with compassion and guidance. I gained many tools from the TPSs I worked with that I will be able to carry on into my future. The Children’s Center Utah deepened my love for working with young children and made me feel like I was really helping to make a positive difference in their lives!"

Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers from NCL for organizing and stocking our Family Store! This Family Store will benefit the infants, children, and families we serve at The Children's Center Utah by meeting their basic needs.

Our volunteers offer at The Children’s Center Utah the capacity to fully invest in the mental health needs and therapeutic strategies in our group rooms, while allowing the volunteers a chance to model healthy relationships and positive behaviors through interacting with the children. We hope The Children’s Center Utah is a good fit for both you and those we serve!

Please note: All volunteers must log hours and sign up for shifts on our volunteer management platform, Track It Forward. After filling out the Interest Form, the Volunteer and Community Outreach Coordinator will reach out to add you to Track It Forward.
