Child Care Volunteer
Volunteers are needed to assist with childcare on these nights while parents take part in the program. The Center for Fathering offers parenting uses child care volunteers on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Our Siempre Padres program uses volunteers on Wednesday nights. Volunteers are also needed for special events.
Urban Stars Huddle Leaders (Literacy)
Volunteers are needed to work with three to four athletes before or after their practices in order to enhance their literacy skills. This is part of our strategy to work on literacy across our programs in order to reduce the achievement gap. Volunteers would be given materials prepared weekly by Urban Ventures which the volunteers will then use with the athletes. Successful volunteers will see this as an opportunity to relate to athletes in an ongoing fashion.
Special Events Volunteer
There are many needs when it comes to Special Events. We are interested in people who want to volunteer with their time on a planning committee, stuffing envelopes, finding raffle/silent auction items, setting up decorations, photographing events, working registration desks as well as cleaning up after events.
