Volunteer Opportunities

 

Program Volunteer

Kate’s Club “Buddies” are the heart of Kate’s Club! Buddies serve as positive role models for Kate’s Club member children, creating safe space by supervising and facilitating Club activities. After completion of training, Buddies enjoy a flexible schedule with shifts on weekday evenings and on Saturday and Sunday mornings and afternoons. Buddies also serve as counselors at Camp Good Mourning.

 

Clubhouse Support Team

Kate’s Club encourages small groups to help during Clubhouse programs on weekends. Your small group will be paired with our afternoon contractors who lead therapeutic activities between 12:00-4:00pm. You will provide hands on support, engaging with our kids. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity to see first-hand what we do and how we do it.

 

Skills- Based Projects and Leadership Positions

Do you or your team have a special skill or set of expertise to offer? We will work with you to determine if your skills fit our current needs. Leadership positions include seats on our Board of Directors and Board of Ambassadors, as well as on committees related to fundraising, event management, communications and technology.

 

Administrative Projects

Administrative Volunteers help prepare for Kate’s Club programs by organizing materials, working on special projects, or supporting office administration. Projects can be short or long term; team or individual.

 

Clubhouse Cleaning Crew

Kate’s Club is always looking for small to medium sized groups of volunteers to keep our Clubhouse in top shape. Cleanup days are usually scheduled during the week at flexible times.

 

Adopt a Meal

Kate’s Club provides a meal for each program at no cost to our members, so we are always in need of meal donations! Volunteers prepare and serve lunch for the kids at weekend programs and provide home cooked family dinners for New Family Orientations and Family Nights on weekday evenings. Adopting a meal is a great service project for a work team or family and no training or screening is required.

Special Event Committees

Kate’s Club’s special events are all run by volunteer teams who manage event design, logistics, activities, communications, and auction. You can walk as a team in Memory Walk, test your endurance in Spin for Kids, or strengthen your leadership skills by chairing a Gala committee. Individual and team projects are available. Training and age requirements differ by project.

 

Supply and Snack Drives

Hold an art supply or snack food drive at your business, school, place of worship, scout troop or club. Kate’s Club maintains a list of currently needed items. [/expand]
