We are currently on the lookout for skilled special project volunteers in the following areas:
Artists for indoor and outdoor mural projects
Carpenters, cabinet makers, woodworkers for the construction of small “building” projects (reading loft, unit blocks, storage cabinet, outdoor storage shed, etc.)
Volunteers to assist with various sewing projects (costumes for pretend play, doll clothes, and Christmas Pageant)
Spanish translators for translating documents and other information for children and families

 

Our Volunteer Program makes it easy for you to make a difference!

 

We rely on volunteers to keep our center running, and there are plenty of opportunities to help out! A brief application, background check and a short orientation is required, so please inquire in advance of when you’d like to get started.

 

Periodic Volunteers
Periodic volunteers respond to special needs or projects at the Center.  For example, if a volunteer wants to focus on the children’s garden, they work specifically on the garden. Periodic volunteers can access our “to do” list and pick a task that they are interested in or for which they have a special skill or talent. Some tasks on the “to do” list can be accomplished by volunteers in their homes, such as a sewing project or cutting task. 

 

Regular Volunteers
A regular volunteer provides service on an agreed upon schedule. Volunteers are welcome to participate at whatever level they can contribute. Some volunteers may be able to commit to only one day each week to read to the children; a Monday through Friday schedule might suit another volunteer who helps over the lunch hour.
We depend on the generosity of our regular volunteers to serve many routine needs at the Center.  Regular volunteers are asked to commit to a service schedule and a task list with which they are comfortable. Regular volunteers in the classroom work alongside our teaching staff to prepare and guide activities, sanitize toys, read stories, and generally facilitate children’s learning and development. If a volunteer does not feel comfortable working directly with children in the classroom, the volunteer may choose a less direct assignment, such as organizing our learning material or assisting with office tasks. 

 

If you are interested in contributing items, time, or talent to improve our program, please contact the Center Director at (402) 939-4690 or email KimB@ccomaha.org.
