Upcoming events (3)
As a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteer, you are a child’s friend, mentor and advocate. You will spend time with a foster child once a week taking them to the park, helping with homework, and become a part of their life. You will help them build trust and reach their full potential. As a CASA volunteer, you ensure a child doesn't have to navigate the foster care system alone, that a child doesn't fall through the cracks. CASA of San Mateo County partners adult volunteers with children who have come under the court’s protection because their parents can’t or won’t take care of them. Be someone a child can count on. Join our team! You can make a profound difference in a child’s life. Currently there are over 150 children in San Mateo County waiting for a CASA volunteer, like you. The first step to become a CASA volunteer is to attend an orientation. Spring 2015 orientation dates: March 26, April 7 Orientation and training schedules are posted at www.CASAofSanMateo.org Call[masked] or email [masked] to register for an orientation. All welcome to apply. In critical need of male volunteers.
Share your love of science and nature! For 40 years, the Environmental Volunteers have been teaching school children in their classrooms and local nature preserves about the natural world. This is a great opportunity for learning about your local area and gaining great skills for the future, not to mention having fun! Using innovative teaching materials, our volunteers teach children about Bay Area environments and local ecosystems. Our requirements are simple; all volunteers need is a love of children, nature, and learning! We have an active and diverse team of volunteers so it's a great way to make new friends. We hold training in the fall and in the spring, or on demand for a group of 8 or more keen volunteers. If you want to know more about becoming a part of the EV community, please contact Nikki, our Volunteer Coordinator, at (650)[masked] or email [masked]. We look forward to hearing from you!
