New volunteer opportunities coming soon as we prepare to open the Center for Children and Families. Located in the South Norfolk borough of Chesapeake and just 4 minutes from downtown Norfolk, the Center will provide many volunteer options in the professional kitchen, rooftop garden, after school tutoring, warehouse donation center and much more. 


Fill out a volunteer application below and we will be in touch!

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?
