Opening Doors for Children & Families

Community/ Volunteer Involvement

You are here

The volunteer program of ABC Head Start is based on the premise that a successful program includes meaningful community involvement! Community members, acting as volunteers, are an integral part of service provision. The Board of Directors, management and staff also demonstrate and support this concept.

Throughout the year over 250 volunteers donate significant time to ABC Head Start Society. Volunteers donate a total of over 8000 hours per year. 

In addition, there are many hidden hours donated to the agency by participants in various events. Staff and Board members of ABC Head Start also contribute countless hours of unrecorded volunteer time. Volunteers represent various segments of society, education, age and culture and are motivated to volunteer for various reasons; including a dedication to supporting education, a desire to give back to the community and to fulfill education requirements. Letters of reference are available!

Opportunities for the 2018-2019 school year include classroom participation and supervision, administrative duties, supporting events and community engagement fairs and activities. For an opportunity to join the Board of Directors, please click the Board of Directors tab.
