What do volunteers do?

Volunteers are critical at ForKids. Volunteers can be trained to work in virtually all of our programs. Volunteer experiences range from positions for individuals interested in volunteering just once or regularly to opportunities for corporate or church groups interested in community service projects.

How do I become a volunteer?

Complete our online interest form. Once received, we will contact you about attending a Volunteer Meet and Greet to learn more about ForKids and the different volunteer opportunities we offer.

 

If you have any questions, contact Karen Sekulski at(757) 622-6400 x112 or ksekulski@ForKids.org

Can children volunteer?

Children must be at least 13 years old to volunteer without a parent present, a parent must sign an approval form, and the child must display the level of maturity needed for the task. Children under 13 may only volunteer with a parent/guardian present and with Volunteer Team approval. 

We encourage parents to help their younger children host a supply drive for ForKids families and kids. This offers your child the experience of giving back to those in need in an age-appropriate and meaningful way. Learn more about supply drives HERE.
