Office of Volunteer Services
The Office of Volunteer Services is committed to ensuring that our volunteers have a positive and rewarding experience during their time with us. We provide Children’s Aid programs and staff with access to dedicated individuals looking to donate a portion of their time working directly with and on behalf of our children and families. Currently, the Office of Volunteer Services supports over forty programs and events involving volunteers.
