Volunteer at ChildServe
Making a Difference
ChildServe volunteers make an enormous difference in the lives of the kids and young adults we serve. We have many volunteer opportunities like playing games, preparing or helping with a craft, and supporting fun events throughout the year. We welcome energetic, enthusiastic individuals and groups who pass our background check process.
Great Life Champions: Help us bring our mission to life by playing games, prepping crafts, and helping with activities.
Special Skills & Talents: Put your musical gifts, dancing prowess, sewing skills, woodworking mastery, arts and crafts abilities to great use.
Special Event Support: Help us bring our fun-filled events to life through event prep, set-up, or clean-up; running a game or activity, helping with check-in, and more.
Administrative Support: Are you task-oriented and love to see a job well-done? Help various services through filing, data entry, assembling packets, making photocopies, preparing crafts, and more.
Professional Volunteer: From landscaping to fundraising, we love hearing from professionals looking to donate their expertise across many fields.
We partner with individual volunteers who are willing to donate a minimum requirement of 20 hours in 6 months or more to the children and young adults we serve.
We welcome volunteers of all ages! However, children 13 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
For children with complex medical conditions, getting sick can be life threatening. To protect the health of our community, individual, in-person volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19. Depending on the area you volunteer in, ChildServe may require you to receive a flu shot. All volunteers must be symptom free to volunteer.
