Volunteering at Village Home

Why Volunteer at Village Home?

  1. It’s “otterly” good for you. Volunteers feel less stress and are happier people. It feels good to give to a worthy cause and to help others.
  2. It keeps costs for everyone (including you) at Village Home lower.
  3. You will meet people in the community and make new friends.
  4. You will learn something new.
  5. Your model of community service and civic responsibility will be noticed by the next generation. Make a difference for today and the future through your service.

Village Home encourages all of our families to volunteer. We understand that busy parents are juggling a lot and we do our best to make it easy to contribute your time and talent to your community. Volunteer duties vary from just a couple of hours a term to a weekly commitment.  Need more info? Just email us at volunteer@villagehome.org.

If you have a TEEN who would like to volunteer at Village Home, please see our Teen Volunteer Program information.

Volunteer Sign-Ups for One-Time Helpers

Throughout the year, we will have LOTS of opportunities for our families to lend a helping hand. Campus Cleanup days, event workers, teacher appreciation, and gardening days are just some examples. Sign up to help out! Even though we know our volunteers are giving because they love Village Home, and want to contribute, we award volunteer CLAMS as a way to show our appreciation. Why Clams? To honor our fabulous otter mascot, the Village Home Voyager! You can collect CLAMS and turn them in for merchandise (not tuition). A typical example is volunteering at a special event for an evening, and receive $10 Clams, which can get you $10 closer to the cool sweatshirt! This is about being a part of your community! Thank you!

Volunteer for Board Committees

Our hardworking, talented Board of Directors is home to several key committees that welcome non-board members to serve. If you are interested in any of these committees, please email volunteer@villagehome.org and we will get you in touch with a Board Member. Board-Sponsored Committees include: Fundraising, Budget/Finance, Building/Safety, Equity Diversity and Inclusion, and more. Committee members serve out of the kindness of their heart and out of a sincere interest in providing leadership to advance the mission of Village Home. If you have an interest in serving Village Home on the Board of Directors, serving on a committee is a great way to get started!
