COMMUNITY CHILD GUIDANCE CLINIC INC
Offer your skills as a gardener or working with children by becoming a garden programs assistant at the Community Child Guidance Clinic's new sustainable gardening program. Students at our school regularly participate in planting and harvest day activities with the vegetables we grow in indoor/outdoor school garden. Volunteers are needed to help staff successfully run these activities by assisting with general supervision, clean-up/set-up, demonstrations and other needed tasks. Weekday availability is preferred, as most garden activities occur during school hours. The children we work with in our facility are currently receiving treatment for a variety of mental and behavioral health conditions, comfort working with this population is a must.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
