Interact with the Youth of the KARE program - Volunteers Needed

Hi Everyone!

The third Saturdays of the month we'll be volunteering with the youth of the Golden Gate Community Center who are part of the KARE program in West central Phoenix! 

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 caregiver's are in a special Time to Share program, we will interact with the youth doing a range of activities in their gymnasium, pool, foosball, arts and crafts, games, etc.

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.

Time: 9:30am - 12:15 pm

Dress Attire: Casual

Duties: Play with the kids! Interacting/Engaging youth in physical activities in gym (dodgeball, football, frisbee, jump rope) as well as arts & crafts & table games, etc. There is also a toddlers area if you enjoy that age group.

Minimum age is 15 with an accompanying adult.

Our charity partners rely on us to attend when we say we will and our attendance policy is intended to ensure we can meet our charity partners' expectations.

    What a great time. The kids are great and I felt like one myself. Haven't played dodge ball or kick ball since 6th grade!
