KIDS Initiative has many volunteer opportunities to work behind the scenes and volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds, experience, and skills.



The roles of our volunteers vary from Board Members (both Working Board and Advisory Board positions), to Granting Writing Committee Members, to Event Volunteers, and many more.

There are several different ways to support the organization with your gift of time! Volunteers must go through an application and screening process. We want to be sure you’re placed in a role that will be most beneficial!
