What does a Kid’s Place Volunteer do?

  • A Kid’s Place Volunteer works with staff to facilitate fun, trauma-sensitive, activities, for the children we serve. A Kid’s Place Volunteer teaches children how to turn to and learn from positive adult role models. Studies have shown that ONE positive adult influence in a child’s life, teaches them resiliency. Our Volunteers make a difference in the lives of many children every day!
