Let’s do it!

- All child care volunteers are required to participate in a four-hour orientation and practice hands-on training before starting their position.
Child Care volunteers make a commitment to volunteer regularly, working with different age groups of children 6 years and younger, for each shift. Working with the Volunteer Services Manager, you will determine a schedule that allows you to volunteer twice per month. While the current shifts available may vary, volunteer shifts take place seven days a week, at the following times.
7:30am – 10:30am
10:30am – 1:30pm
3:00pm – 6:00pm
6:00pm – 10:00pm
We are currently most in need of volunteers for afternoon, evening and weekend shifts, as well as volunteers who are able to make a weekly commitment.
