Volunteer With KID
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended all volunteer operations. Please complete the Individual Volunteer Inquiry Form to be notified when we resume normal operations. Stay Safe!
KID Aftercare Volunteers
Tutors wanted! Volunteers can offer homework and reading assistance during the school year at our Aftercare Program between 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm, Monday-Friday. During KID Summer Camp, volunteer support is needed Monday-Friday 9:30 am-5:30 pm to assist with the day’s planned activities.
KID Preschool PLUS Volunteers
An extra set of hands is always welcomed in our Preschool! Volunteer support is needed in the classrooms with arts & crafts, outdoor play, games, reading support and more! Opportunities are available Monday through Friday, 9:30am – 5:00pm.
Volunteers can support our various departments with office duties, including, but not limited to, filing, archiving, shredding, and organizing. Organizational skills are a plus.
KID’s warehouse gets donations every day! If you love to organize, we would love to have you help us sort and inventory donations as they come in. Volunteer shifts are available Monday-Friday, 9:30 am-4:30 pm.
Volunteers can benefit while having tons of fun supporting KID at our signature events, including our Annual Duck Fest Derby, presented by JM Family Enterprises, Inc. Our main needs during events are set-up and breakdown. For more information on our events, please click here.
Is your company, community group, school, or organization looking for a fun and enriching volunteer experience? We have numerous ways for your group to make a difference. Please fill out this Group Volunteer Inquiry and someone from our Volunteer Team will contact you to discuss available opportunities for your group!
At KID, we know that anyone at any age can make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve. You have to be 16 years old to volunteer on our campus, but if you are younger than 16 you can still get involved! For every $20 you raise for KID through any of the options below (or any other creative ideas you can come up with) you will get 1 hour of community service.
Donate Your Birthday
Instead of receiving gifts, ask your friends and family to make a donation to KID!
Host A Drive Or A Bake Sale
Get your friends together at school or in your community and collect new or gently used clothes, non-perishable food, or baby items or host a bake sale and donate the proceeds to KID.
Be a Duck Fest Derby Ambassador
Help us get 40,000 rubber ducks adopted for the 14th Annual Duck Fest Derby presented by JM Family Enterprises, Inc. You can start a team and invite your friends to become Duck Ambassadors too. (You must be 18 years or older to adopt a duck). Check out Duck Headquarters for more information!
Participate In The KID Hero 5K
Join our other KID Superheroes in a race to the finish line at the Annual KID Hero 5K presented by Ultimate Software and hosted by the KID Auxiliary. Assemble your team and see how far you can go! Check out the KID Hero 5K page for more details.
How old do I have to be to volunteer?
KID volunteers need to be at least 16 to volunteer on campus. Can’t wait until your 16th birthday? Check out how you can make a difference in the “Volunteers Under 16” section above.
Do I have to volunteer every week?
We ask that volunteers commit to spending at least 2 hours per week when volunteering with our Aftercare and Preschool programs.
Do I have to pass a background check?
Yes, passing a Level 2 background check is a requirement for all individual volunteers, even if you are not volunteering directly with the children. We are investing in our volunteers and cover the cost associated with the background check.
Do I have to do an orientation?
Yes, after your background check is completed a member of the Volunteer Team will contact you to set up your orientation. This is a quick tour around KID before your first volunteer shift.
