The Child Development Council is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies on the many contributions of the community. Here are several ways you may support the agency through volunteering:
Office Support – We operate a busy office and occasionally have projects that involve general office skills, such as copying, collating, and resource inventory. On the last Wednesday of the month, we need one person to assist in the morning to meet guests and answer telephones.
Social Gathering Organizer – our two home visiting programs for families with infants and toddlers offer social gatherings once or twice a year. These events are often held in the park and food is donated from area businesses.
Student Support, Work Study and Internships – These opportunities are agreed upon on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us if you have a skill, project or idea to share.
Board of Directors – Members of the Board of Directors are elected volunteers responsible for the governance the agency. Our goal is to maintain a representative group of people, reflecting the needs of our constituencies and the community as a whole.
