About

Youth Gambling Prevention (a program of Volunteers of America Oregon) is a community partner with Floyd Light Middle School’s SUN School’s (School’s Uniting Neighborhoods) after school program to disseminate gambling prevention strategies to youth through providing hands-on experiences and positive adult bonding.

Volunteers will play an integral role in facilitating activities for youth, building positive relationships and watching children grow. This is a great opportunity to gain skills in child development, teaching, and counseling. Sample activities include:

1. Support staff by working one-on-one and in small groups of students to aid in the completion of provided activities - games and or art projects.

2. Set up and break down activities for the day; assist in the implementation and creation of new projects.

3. Co-lead field trips to local parks and other outdoor activities for our Kids at Home in the Wild (KaHW!) program.
