Volunteer for Project HOPE Foundation
Volunteers are vital to the success of the Project HOPE Foundation and its programs. Throughout the year, volunteers are needed for both ongoing programs and annual events.
To learn more about volunteering, please fill out our form below.
For these programs, volunteers work with the children on a consistent basis throughout the school year. Even if you are short on time, you can still help out with one of these programs. We will work around your schedule to be as flexible as possible.
- Weekly physical education programs
- Tutoring and reading programs
- Mentoring programs for children of all ages
- Social outings for children with autism
Weekly physical education programs offer the children of the Hope Academy the opportunity to learn healthy living habits, as well as important values such as sportsmanship and self-esteem. Volunteers are needed to plan and to lead these programs.
Although the class sizes are small, additional one-on-one tutoring is beneficial for the students.
Mentoring programs offer the children an opportunity to develop a close relationship with another adult outside of the school and their homes.
Children with autism require special training to help them develop their social skills. We are looking for volunteers to take children with autism on social outings to practice skills learned in a one-on-one setting.
The following events are held once every year, providing a perfect opportunity for volunteering for a single event.
- HOPE Relay - The HOPE Relay is a unique event that combines the joy of exercise, the camaraderie of a team, the competition of a race, and the satisfaction of supporting the services of Project HOPE Foundation. Held each November, the HOPE Relay offers six ways to participate: run, walk, donate, sponsor, volunteer, or spectate. Volunteer committee members help secure sponsors, develop teams, and plan activities. One the day of the event, volunteers monitor logistics and create a festive day. Read more …
