Volunteer work available through P.R.O. Kids - assisting with administrative and organizational tasks. P.R.O. Kids facilitates placing children in community programs that are run by other organizations, but does not actually interact with the children we support.
Over half of the applications received in one year arrive in the fall. This is an especially busy time for the P.R.O. Kids Coordinator. Extra support is needed in order to place children into fall programs in a timely fashion. This is a short-term volunteer position involving 20 hours a week for four weeks beginning mid-August and ending in mid-September. Interested? Call the P.R.O. Kids Coordinator at 625-3212.
On occasion, larger-scale events are scheduled, and the P.R.O. Kids Coordinator requires additional support. These are short-term in nature to assist in the planning relating to one specific event (e.g., Family Skating Events, Mayor’s Mulligan). Interested in helping? Call the P.R.O. Kids Coordinator at 625-3212.
Alternatively, if you would like to volunteer by helping at events, contact the P.R.O. Kids Coordinator at 625-3212 and add your name to the P.R.O. Kids Event Team list today!
