With the help of volunteers, we can keep our lawn and gardens looking tidy! We’re in search of an individual or group to mow, weed, and fertilize regularly at our Youth and Family Center this summer.
Homework Helpers is an after school program for students in grades 2-8 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Homework Helpers is offered Monday-Friday at both of our Community Life Centers. Students get a healthy snack from the Food Bank, enjoy free play time, and have designated homework time. Homework Helpers volunteers build positive relationships with the students, facilitate activities, and help students with homework. Volunteers typically help one day per week at one of the Community Life Centers. Fall 2018 Homework Helpers will start the week of September 4!
Steps to volunteer with us include: completing an online application, interviewing with our Volunteer Coordinator, and passing a background check. Email Amy Stephens at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 970-286-1446 with questions.
