Parent and community engagement is a cornerstone of Head Start’s success.
Volunteers are a vital piece of our program. We have a great need for volunteers in a number of areas including:
Helping in a classroom
Mentoring a parent by providing an opportunity to job shadow
Cleaning, painting, and helping with the general repair of the facilities
Sharing a special talent such as music, gardening, training animals, art, juggling
Donating funds or items of need for our program such as books, paper, etc.
Inviting us to your business to share our mission with your co-workers
Who can volunteer?
Anyone who has a passion for enriching the lives of children and families is a potential volunteer.
Why are volunteers so important to Wyoming Child and Family Development (WCFD)?
In addition to helping our program run more smoothly, each volunteer’s contribution of time is assigned a dollar value and counted as a donation. In order for our program to qualify for the federal grant which covers 80% of our operating budget, WCFD is required to collect donations totaling 25% of our budget. Donations of volunteer time help us meet this requirement. Your volunteerism is tax-deductible.
