Golden Gate Community Center Kinship KARE Event - Volunteers Needed

Hi Everyone!

This Saturday's event will consist of an ice cream social after the support group's meeting. Although our commitment is till 12:15PM, the center requests our assistance until 1 pm. If you are unable to stay till 1 pm, this is not a problem, if you are, that would be great! Please notate in your RSVP whether you are/are not able to stay till 1 pm.

We are going to be volunteering the third Saturday of the month at Golden Gate Community Center in West central Phoenix!  Golden Gate Community Center has been serving the community for over 70 years and provides Head Start programs, computer labs, ESL classes, cooking classes, after school programs, senior programs, health fairs and special events for the community members.

We'll be volunteering with the youth of the center who are part of the KARE program. This program works with family members raising grandchildren, nieces or nephews, cousins or other relatives; an adoptive family or about to become one; raising children of a family member in jail or raising a child under 18 not born to them. While the caregivers are in a special Time to Share support group, we will interact with the youth doing a range of activities in their gymnasium, pool, foosball, arts and crafts, games, etc.

Shift Time: 9:30-12:15

Dress Attire: Casual

Duties: Play with the kids!  Interacting/Engaging kids in numerous physical activity in gym (dodgeball, football, frisbee, jump rope), as well arts & crafts and table games. We also have a toddler section if you enjoy that age group.

Minimum age is 15 with an adult accompanying them.

 

Thanks for all you do!

    Hey Bree enjoyed it! Really is a great group of kids and if I'm still in the area next time around will definitely do it again (and hopefully have a little more stamina).

    I can stay. Bree, my first event and I recall something about a waiver somewhere? Can't remember if that's a TPP thing or if it was specific to certain events. Please e-mail me if I need one...
