Individual Volunteering

Volunteering opportunities to make an impact in our community

Everyone has the opportunity to be a part of our success. Contribute your talents, skills and resources to help families reach their full potential. You can always make a positive difference and directly impact our mission.

NVFS programs span multiple locations and service areas, with myriad needs that volunteers can assist with. Do you enjoy working with children? Look for opportunities to engage with our Early Head Start and Head Start programs. Are you bilingual? Consider providing interpretation services at our Multicultural Center. Do you want to help others develop essential workforce skills? Serve as a trainer, mock interview or resume reviewer for Training Futures.
