The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Free Arts operates a daily program at Edmund D. Edelman Children's Court in Monterey Park. As a Free Arts volunteer working with the Courthouse Program, you will lead children, and often their adult caregivers, in simple arts and crafts projects as they wait for their court hearings. The art activities help to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety present in the court situation. Many children arrive at court feeling anxious, and after working with you they will leave with a greater sense of confidence and self-worth because they have had fun creating something special to take home.
Volunteer shifts: Monday-Friday (9:30am-12:30pm) and Monday-Thursday (12:30pm-3:30pm)
