“My summer is not complete without volunteering for FOCUS Camp –
I love seeing the same campers each year!”
FOCUS + Fragile Kids offers many volunteer opportunities – from helping at summer day camps to offering a helping hand in the office! We do have a few restrictions:
- Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to volunteer with FOCUS children. Safety for all children is our first concern and this age restriction is for the safety of FOCUS children AND volunteers!
- Volunteers who are 18 years or older must complete a Volunteer Disclosure and Consent Release of Information so FOCUS can perform a background check. Background checks must be done annually and take about three business days. All information collected on volunteers is locked up for safety.
- Volunteering is…..voluntary!! Please volunteer for FOCUS + Fragile Kids if you are interested in helping children with special needs and their families; if you have a heart for service; if you want to have fun AND be helpful!! Please do not volunteer if you do not want to!! We look to our volunteers to ‘jump right in.’ While we do not require volunteers to change diapers, we do expect them to have an accepting attitude and willing heart!!
- FOCUS + Fragile Kids welcomes school clubs, scout troops or church group at our programs. But……as a volunteer at FOCUS, we ask you to leave your cell phone in your pocket and be willing to help without having your best friend with you while at FOCUS + Fragile Kids programs!!
- If you register to volunteer, please know that we count on you!! If you register and then cannot attend, please contact [email protected] as soon as possible!
To see how you can sign up, receive information on any programs, and to volunteer, please complete this On-Line Volunteer Application.
Volunteers who are 18 years old and older will be required to complete a background check to help with most programs. Once volunteers are signed up to help with a program, the Volunteer Coordinator will email them an individualized link which will contain the background check form. Please allow 7 working days for the entire process.
