Volunteers, ages 14 and up, are always welcome at A Kids Place and there are numerous ways you can be a part of what we do. While hands-on time with the children is extremely limited, we offer other opportunities to get involved such as special events, campus clean-ups, and on-site summer camp. Last year our volunteers logged over 5,625 hours in service! Here’s how you can help…
Host On-Site or Off-Site Events
Sponsor an off-site event which allows you to take our children on a fun and exciting outing like a sporting event, concerts, movies, bowling, Chuck E Cheese, miniature golf, etc. A Kid’s Place will transport and accompany the children for the particular event. This event can be as small or as large as you like, and it can be for a specific age group.
Sponsor an on-site event with our children like a field day, themed parties, or an ice cream social. These events are held on Saturday’s and are planned and funded by your group.
We can always use help with clerical support, maintenance support, assisting in our development office, sorting donations or working in our thrift store, AKP Thrift, Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
We need YOU! Would you like to volunteer for one of our special events? Opportunities to help include committee members, event planning, securing auction items, registration, and set-up and break-down of events.
