ORGANIZATION: CAP Tulsa

CAP Tulsa operates 10 Early Childhood Education Centers in the Tulsa Metro area. We are a federal Head Start agency and work with low-income families and their children. It's important to us to give the infant-4 year old children in our schools a variety of educational experiences. That's where you come in.

All of us have interests, hobbies, and skills. You might not realize what a difference you could make sharing your talents with the youngest children. These kiddos get excited when the trash truck comes to the school. Those on the playground run to the fence to watch. Everything is new and exciting at this age. Maybe you played an instrument when you were young, or still do, and could go classroom to classroom one morning and show them your flute, guitar, trumpet, whatever it is that you have. You could play simple songs or make a game out of having them guess whether a note you play is loud or soft or high or low. Perhaps you are a builder, a plumber, or studying engineering and can talk to the kids about how something works. Maybe you love sports and could show the kids some soccer moves or talk to them about the importance of exercise and take them through some simple exercises geared to pre-K kids. Maybe you knit, crochet or sew and would like to read a book and show the kids a sample of something you've made. Maybe you love to read and would love to go to a school every week or every month and read to the kids.

We typically utilize volunteers weekday mornings (9-11 am) and weekday afternoons (3:30-5:30), giving the kids block time from 11:30-2:30 to have lunch and take a nap. We also have opportunities for volunteers to help with special events periodically.

Each volunteer must attend Volunteer Orientation either on site or on Zoom, fill out volunteer paperwork, and provide a Covid vaccine card with a minimum of the first two doses.
