Does your organization need volunteers? Please help us to find all of the volunteer opportunities available for Teens & Children in Maricopa County, Arizona. Help us to generate both short term and long term volunteer ideas for how Children & Teens can contribute in a positive way to their communities. What types of youth volunteer help does your organization need?
Here is the information that we have so far. Please send in other ideas and volunteer opportunities via the “Share Information & Resources” comment section below and we will add your tips, ideas & volunteer opportunities. We will let schools, government agencies, faith communities, etc. know what types of volunteer opportunities you have available. This is a great way to get new, enthusiastic volunteers & promote your organization!
Thank you for helping children & teens to find positive ways to contribute to our community!
There are 4 categories of potential volunteers that we have been hearing from:
1. Teens who want to volunteer or do internships during the summer.
2. Children & Teens who have a Community Service requirement for their school, club or team. They usually prefer short term projects or volunteer opportunities that last between 10 and 40 hours.
3. Children & Teens who have a Community Service requirement for the Juvenile Justice System for curfew violations, graffiti, shoplifting, etc. These are good kids who made a bad choice and need and want to give back to their community. You can limit who applies to volunteer by telling us what type of offenses you will not accept (EX. assault, domestic violence, sexual offenses, drug or alcohol offenses.)
4. Children 12 & under want to know about opportunities to volunteer with or without their parents.
Here are some volunteer ideas that people have given us so far. Do you have any volunteer opportunities available for children & teens? Does your organization need any of this type of help? Please, let us know so that we can direct children, teens & families to you.
