If you love working with children, want to give back to your community, or are interested in a career in early childhood education, volunteering provides a rewarding experience for us and for you. Also, volunteering is one way that you help us meet our required 25% of non-federal share. 

We have volunteer opportunities in classrooms, food services, facilities, administrative offices, and recruitment.  Some of our volunteer opportunities include (but are not limited to):

  • Volunteer in a classroom
  • Read a book to a child or group of children
  • Help supervise children on the playground
  • Visit the classroom and share something about your cultural heritage or family history
  • Teach the children about your favorite hobby or job
  • Help collate the classroom newsletter
  • Type and file
  • Help prepare mailings and stuff envelopes
  • Distribute Head Start Program flyers in the community
  • Help with the planning and set-up of parent meetings
  • Assist with food preparation and serving
  • Participation on our Leadership Council

When you volunteer, you can expect:

  • Challenges, discovery, and new learning
  • Supervision, initial and ongoing task training, job skills and references
  • To be treated with respect and recognized for the work you’ve done
  • To undergo a fingerprinting and online criminal history background check if you are not an enrolled parent

We expect you:

  • To maintain confidentiality and our professional behavior standards
  • To complete required forms and records
  • To get a Food Handler’s Permit (if you wish to help serve meals)
