Volunteering at ChildServe
ChildServe volunteers are found in every area of the organization. They offer friendship and care to the children we serve, and provide much-needed support so our staff can help each child live a great life! Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and groups at every ChildServe location and for all of our services. There are many opportunities to be involved directly with the children, or to support children indirectly, based on your interests. Volunteers are needed during the day, evenings, and weekends. No experience is necessary. Time involvement will vary based on each volunteer’s schedule and availability. Opportunities can be scheduled on a one-time basis or as an ongoing volunteer opportunity.
