HOW YOU CAN volunteer!

 Your main goals as a volunteer will be two things:

1) Make sure the clients are having a FUN by helping them and cheering them on.

2) Help staff with set up, break down and other tasks as requested. 

It is IMPORTANT for volunteers to keep the FOCUS on the clients at all times: please do not take out your cellphone at any time. Spend time with the clients, please do not hang out with other volunteers and chat.

  • All Volunteers MUST call and schedule their volunteer hours - no drop ins, please.
  • Please email us, so we may give you a full description of duties for EACH program.
  • STUDENTS: If you’re asking for a signature you MUST present your paper to the instructor BEFORE the event starts. The paper must be fully filled out (date, time worked etc), only then will our coach sign the form.
