Volunteer Opportunities

Get Involved ... Volunteer to Make a Difference!

 

Volunteers play a central role in the life and growth of a nonprofit organization.  With volunteers, costs can be contained, extra services provided, funds raised, the marketing message communicated to a wider audience, and future board leadership developed.  Without volunteer participation in all aspects of the organization, our jobs become more difficult, costs go up, and the nonprofit runs the risk of becoming insular and not responsive to the needs of the constituents they are dedicated to help. 

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities – Switzer Learning Center has worked with several local companies and service organizations to provide group volunteer opportunities for health and career fairs, holiday activities and parties, and campus improvement projects.  We would love to work with your organization and create a volunteer project that will uniquely meet our mutual interests. 

Individual Volunteer Opportunities – Opportunities are available for individuals who would like to offer their time and talent to a special school.  Contact Dr. Rebecca Foo, and we will match your wishes and our needs to make a difference in the life of a “special” child.  To become a regular volunteer who has on-going contact with students, a finger print screening and tuberculosis test is required by the California Department of Education.
