About

The Child Life Program at Church Health Center has two classrooms: IT (ages 6 months-3 years) and Child Life (ages 4-11 years). Volunteers in our Child Life Room assist in curriculum-based lessons such as the following: children's yoga, movement and exercise classes, cooperative games on our basketball court, cooking lessons in the kitchen, etc. Volunteers in our Infant Toddler Room assist children with free play opportunities, art, healthy heart lessons, and physical activities. Also, you may be given specific tasks such as making crafts, assisting staff in gathering materials for lessons, helping keep things organized and stocked, etc.

All people wishing to volunteer in our program must fill out a volunteer application, participate in an orientation, as well as be able to pass a background check in order to be placed in our program. We welcome volunteers for a minimum of a 3 month commitment so that they can gain knowledge and build meaningful relationships with the children and families that we serve. We ask that volunteers come for two hours each time so that they make the most of their time here. However, this is not a requirement. We are in need of volunteers Monday-Thursday from 4:00-8:00 PM and Saturday from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. This is when we have the highest volume of children. All volunteers must be 18 years of age. Children and staff depend on Child Life Education and Movement Volunteers as a part of our essential team.
