Do you love to smash subscribe buttons and double-tap great photos? Consider becoming a Digital Ambassador for Way to Grow! Ambassadors commit to sharing news, posts, and creating their own content about the work of Way to Grow on their social media platforms. By activating your audience, you can help build support for programming, raise money, and help families learn about our services!
Way to Grow serves an incredibly diverse community. In order to better reach families and share important information, we need to translate materials from English into the various languages spoken by our families. Translators can expect to translate flyers, forms, and basic marketing materials. If you are fluent and proficient in writing in the following languages, get in touch! Languages needed include: Amharic, Arabic, French, Hmong, Oromo, Somali, and Spanish.
Preschool Pals Volunteer (currently unavailable)
Become a classroom volunteer and you will see the impact of our work firsthand! Volunteers are needed as weekly classroom helpers during normal classroom hours (M–F, mornings and afternoons during the school year). In order to maintain a stable classroom environment, we ask that you be able to commit to a set schedule for at least three months at a time. All volunteers will be required to pass a background check.
Family Events (currently unavailable)
Do you love meeting new people, a little bit of crowd control, and a lot of laughter? Then consider volunteering for one of our family events! Throughout the year, we host a variety of events for Way to Grow families—from 0ur annual Early Learner Graduation to regular Family Engagement Nights. We are always looking for volunteers with a lot of energy, ready to support our staff and engage with families!
We’re looking for folks who are great with details, who take initiative, and are ready to work hard and play hard to help out with our biggest events of the year! Whether it’s our Education is Power luncheon, our Shine Celebration gala, or any event in-between, we need hardworking volunteers to help us pull off these signature events so we can raise funds to support our work.
Due to COVID-19, Way to Grow events are currently virtual. Until we can gather again, we would love have volunteers help with digital promoting, silent auction solicitation, and other remote opportunities.
There are always projects popping up throughout the year that could use a little extra help. These could include sorting donations, putting together curriculum kits, making cards for families, or wrapping gifts during our annual Adopt-A-Family program. We don’t always know when we need folks, but if you’re flexible and up for anything, we can keep you in mind the next time something comes up!
