Volunteer for a ONE-TIME Project/Craft/Activity

with the Children & Teens

We select volunteers who seek to fulfill our motto, every child deserves a childhood!

Wanting to empower kids through fun? Have special skills/talents you're wanting to share? We want to talk to you!

Our best projects/activities/adventures come from volunteers with a passion to share their talents, hobbies and skills with the kids we serve. Are you an avid gardener? A hot air balloon pilot? A Renaissance Fair jouster? What do you love?

Thank you for your interest in supporting the kids we serve!!
