Summer Volunteer Opportunities Summer is a time in which we are able to provide young people with creative experiential learning opportunities as well as opportunities to reinforce skills, but summer is also a time when we need extra volunteers! Help make summer possible for at-risk youth by joining our team in one of four capacities below or contacting Donia Quon at donia@kidworksonline.org or 714-834-9400.

Summer Education Volunteer

The focus of this program will be to make education fun throughout the summer by helping 50 1st – 5th grade students with fundamental math and language arts elements, taught through progressive and interactive curriculum. By focusing on the educational needs of these students, you will help guide them towards improving the skills needed to succeed at school. We are looking for 30 volunteers to spend at least one and a half hours with 25 1st – 3rd grade students from 9:00-10:30am and 25 3rd – 5th grade students from 10:30-12:00pm. Summer Education is a four-week program running from July 9th – August 3rd from Monday – Thursday.

YouthWorks Summer Volunteer

This is a two part opportunity. If you would like to go on the adventures our 6th-12th graders are taking this summer, we would be delighted to have you join them during their summer program. Our 6th-12th grade students will be doing a six-week program journeying all over Southern California and participating in the arts, multi-cultural experiences, outdoor adventures, and service learning. If you do not want to go on the journey but would like to provide the actual opportunities for our youth’s summer activities, we’d like to hear your ideas. We need 20 YouthWorks Volunteers to help during the summer sometime between1 – 8 pm Tuesday – Friday. *Times vary each day.

Character and Spiritual Development Volunteer

Throughout our summer programs, we will have a need for volunteers interested in focusing on activities that will foster stronger character and spiritual development for our K-12th grade youth. Examples of this volunteer opportunity include putting on a day of Vacation Bible School, speaking in front of youth about your own journey of faith, organizing an event for KidWorks families to enjoy together, or perhaps you have an idea of your own. We’d love to hear about it!

Culinary Volunteer

We need healthy snacks, sack lunches, and specialty meals for all of our summer programs! If you are interested in getting a group of friends or family involved coming together to prepare a meal once or several times during the summer, this would be a great opportunity for you. The cooking options are endless! Donations of healthy nonperishable food items are also welcome (ex. Granola bars, 100% juice boxes). Interested in getting involved or have questions? Contact: Donia Quon at 714-834-9400 or donia@kidworksonline.org
