Group/Corporate Volunteer Projects
Group volunteering is a great way to strengthen your team, demonstrate your commitment to the community, and have fun. We are regularly supported through various group projects that help us complete facility updates, provide additional special services, and save staff valuable time that can be spent working directly with youth.
Groups can participate in a wide variety of projects based on group number, scheduling, and current program needs.
- Types: Our most common group projects include painting, donation sorting, food preparation, and gardening. All of these positively impact our youth by enhancing their environment and showing that others care about them.
- Budget: To the extent possible, groups are asked to cover expenses involved with beautification projects.
- Timeframe: Most opportunities are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for groups of 5 to 15 people. We do not have any weekend projects or large (25 or more volunteers) projects available at this time.
