Help Change the Life of a Child

Group Volunteer Projects Temporarily Cancelled

With an abundance of caution, and with concern for the health and wellbeing of our community of supporters, The Children’s Center is canceling group volunteer projects for the time being, and until further notice. We remain deeply grateful for the support of our volunteers! If you have a question about a scheduled event please email Leslie Durham at .

Preschool Assistants

We need caring individuals in our Therapeutic Preschool to assist specialists with a group of nine children with a wide range of emotional and behavioral health diagnoses. If you are interested in working with children, or learning more about behavioral health, this is the opportunity for you! Shifts are weekdays from either 9 AM - noon or noon - 3 PM. You only have to come once a week, but must commit to the same shift every week. This is a very rewarding opportunity, but requires consistent, long-term commitment.

Office Support

Help our staff with filing, data entry, and other special office projects. This volunteer opportunity is fairly flexible, but we are looking for help Monday-Friday between 8 AM-5 PM.

Toy Washers

Toys are an important part of therapy at The Children’s Center and can always use a good cleaning! It is a great group activity, and we typically schedule them somewhere between 3-5 PM Monday-Friday, but can be somewhat flexible in scheduling.

Donation Collectors

This is the perfect volunteer opportunity if you are looking for something to do at home, and need some flexibility in hours. We constantly need supplies for our Therapeutic Preschool, and also for families receiving services at The Children’s Center. With exception of bedding, underwear, and stuffed animals, items can be gently used. See our current wish list.

Donation Sorters

We need help sorting donations. This is usually done at our downtown location and can be done Mondays-Wednesdays, and Fridays any time between 9AM-5 PM. This is a good 2 person job, and can be pretty flexible to work with your schedule.

Event Support

We need help at our Breakfast in the fall, Jewelry Luncheon in the spring, and formal Gala in the summer. Shifts and job descriptions vary, contact Leslie for more information: . These events are always fun – but you must be 21 to help out.

Our Jewelry Luncheon is on February 27, 2020 at The Little America. We need volunteers to assist with check in, jewelry sales, guest support, etc. Volunteers need to be available from 10 AM-1 PM and be dressed in business attire.
