|Adult Volunteer Opportunities|
Volunteers are vital to fulfilling our mission. See what ways you can get involved by looking at the many volunteer opportunities available below!
We rely on volunteers to help facilitate our SafeTalk workshops to school-age children throughout Fairfield County. As part of this anti-bullying, anti-violence prevention program for elementary school students, SafeTalk volunteers facilitate or assist program facilitators with simple role-plays, discussions, distribution of materials, and, on occasion, one-on-one confidential meetings with students. Most presentations are given during school hours. An interview, two-day training session and background checks are required.
In-house volunteers provide the extra attention and positive role-models that are crucial to the healing of children and teens staying at our temporary emergency shelters. In-house volunteers help with homework, supervise play, assist at meal time and more. This volunteer assignment requires a 2-3 hour weekly commitment – after 4 p.m. weekdays or on weekends. An interview, one-day training and background checks are required.
Are you handy with a paintbrush or a hammer? Do you have a green thumb and like to garden? Are you a talented graphic artist or photographer? Many opportunities are available on our campus, whether it’s decorating, designing, fixing or cleaning.
Dinner and Lunch Donations
Preparing and dropping off meals for our residents (12-16 individuals) is a tremendous help to the Agency. Dinner donations save Kids in Crisis money and allow our counselors to spend time with our residents that might otherwise be spent preparing dinner.
Kids at Heart (for Young Professionals)
Each year, Kids in Crisis hosts several fundraising events that raise crucial funds to support the programs and services offered by Kids in Crisis. If you are eager to take a leadership role in one of our events, consider joining an event committee.
