CMFCAA offers monthly respite events for all of the families we serve. Odyssey is a four-hour monthly event held in various counties across central Missouri. Volunteers are needed to supervise and maintain order amongst various ages of children. We fill the event with enrichment activities, play, and excitement for the kids. Volunteers will each support a small group of children as they go through the event activities.
Starting with some fun busy work to entertain the children as they arrive, we will then serve dinner once our capacity is reached. Volunteers will help set-up and serve dinner then clean-up as children are preparing for the next activity. Volunteers will be responsible for a small group (1/5) and will accompany them throughout the evening to be mentors and manage the needs of their group during the event.
Would like to hang out with kids and contribute to their healthy development? Get plugged in!
