The Relatives provides a variety of opportunities for volunteers – for both individuals interested in working directly with youth and those who just want to “help out around the house.” We regularly enlist the help of businesses, church groups, youth programs and others to help paint inside and out, maintain the yard, or tackle larger maintenance projects. Many of the same groups may also choose to provide activities for the youth, including art projects or recreational opportunities.
Some volunteer suggestions, include:
- Organizing an evening or weekend activity with the youth, including games, craft projects, presentations/demonstrations, cooking lessons, and more.
- Sponsoring or donating dinner or lunch – groups bring dinner on a regular schedule and stay for food and fellowship.
- Done-in-a-Day projects like spring and fall yard maintenance, window cleaning, organizing, and other chores.
- Tutoring and mentoring.
- Helping organize agency activities.
