During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Volunteer with your significant other as a Couple Match. A Couple Match can interact with a child either one-on-one or together as a couple. Volunteering can also be more fun when done as a family! Couple and Family Match opportunities enable volunteers to include a child in activities, board games, discussions or fun outings. It is a perfect way to spend time together, as well as a rewarding and educational experience for everyone involved. And, the Family Match is a wonderful chance to introduce your children to volunteerism -- family fun plus one!
RESTRICTIONS: First and foremost, our volunteers must be willing to share time with a child. Volunteer adult(s) must be at least 21 years old and have access to transportation, and adult must accompany all children involved in match. The time commitment is about 3-5 hours, three to four times each month. Volunteers must also be able to make a minimum 2 year commitment. Volunteers will be supported by their assigned Match Support Specialist.
