The children and staff at 18TH Avenue love our volunteers, who make what we do possible!
Being a volunteer is extremely rewarding, educational, exciting and just plain fun.
You can have a huge impact on the lives of the children and families served by Eighteenth Avenue Family Enrichment Center
Numerous volunteer opportunities are available where you can interact with a child.
You can help a teacher in a classroom, assist with art or help a child with homework.
If you would rather volunteer for tasks that do not directly involve children, that's great too!
We always need help with classroom prep, library organization, fundraising, lawn-care, special events and more...no task is too small!
Our volunteers are a valuable asset to our organization and to the 98+ children in our care. We hope you consider joining us!
