There are a number of ways for you to get involved with PRO Kids! Whether it's volunteering at one of our events, coming up with fun, new ideas with our Fundraising Committee or helping us achieve our goal on our Board of Directors.

Here's how you can get involved!


A lot of the volunteer opportunities at PRO Kids are in-office planning or helping at events. There is no direct programming with children at PRO Kids! If you want to get involved in our events, or in planning, contact us at


Fundraising Committee

Our fundraising committee is a very active and fun group that meets every 2-3 months. Together we plan and organize events, sell merchandise, make approaches to businesses and we're always thinking of creating new fundraising ideas.
