What Can Volunteers Do?

What Can Volunteers Do? 2018-06-12T09:38:33+00:00

We believe it is best practice to meet with each volunteer individually to do an assessment of your skills and interest to ensure that we match you with the perfect volunteer position for you!

Many volunteer positions develop on an as needed/discovered basis.  Do you have a talent or skill that might benefit our organization?   Let’s develop a volunteer plan together!

6-week after-school program for corporations/businesses

Week one focuses on setting the foundation and building trust with students. The sequential 5-weeks walks students through the STEP process for solving a conflict with hands-on activities that build skills for each step. Week 6 culminates in the creation of a “Peace Pole” to be planted at the school to serve as a daily reminder to students of what they learned and the relationships that were built during the time.

Requires:

  • 4-hour training prior to the program
  • 8-20 volunteers
  • $2,000 donation to cover a facilitator to be present at each meeting and training
