Plus, it’s a great way to meet new friends, give back to your community and learn a new skill! Become a volunteer today!
Promises2Kids depends on our volunteers every day. We offer a wide range of rewarding opportunities and experiences that help us on projects from assisting on special fundraising events and with office administrative projects to participating in community fairs, and assisting with details of our popular Gift Drives. Join our amazing team of volunteers and play a vital role in delivering our promise to foster children of a brighter future. All interested volunteers must attend one of our monthly orientations.
Ways you can support:
1. Volunteer with Promises2Kids
This is the most flexible of volunteer options. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. These volunteers assist with our community drives and fundraisers. For our community drives, volunteers assist with receiving, counting and sorting donations in preparation for distribution to foster youth. For our fundraisers, volunteers assist with set up, check in/registration, check out and various other areas where needed. Volunteer hours are flexible. (some opportunities are during the weekdays, some on the weekend)
2. Volunteer for Camp Connect
Camp Connect is a program that reunites brothers and sisters that live apart in the foster care system. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age and complete a Live Scan background check. Camp Connect plans 6-8 events throughout the year and volunteers attend these events and assist social workers in supervising the youth who attend. (all events take place during the Weekends)
In the course of my career as a social worker for over 10 years, I have been exposed to many human emotions; however, none have affected me as profoundly as witnessing siblings being reconnected at Camp Connect.
3. Volunteer as a Guardian Scholars Mentor
Guardian Scholars is a program that provides scholarships to former foster youth who are interested in pursuing a higher education. Our Guardian Scholars Mentors provide support and guidance to these students. Volunteers must be at least 28 years of age and commit to a minimum of one year of service to this program. This requires the most amount of time as our mentors have weekly contact with their students.
