Youth Volunteer Opportunities

JourneyCare’s Kids Who Care youth volunteer programs set our volunteer program apart from other nonprofit organizations. Join the club!

Here’s how it works
Participants work with parent leaders and JourneyCare Staff members for a set amount of time for education, service and leadership training. While learning to celebrate life at all stages, kids will also discover how they can, support the communities we serve, and work on projects to bring a little joy to our patients and their families. Participants agree to participate in each meeting. Pre-registration is required.

Programs include:

JourneyCare Juniors
Via email, 4th through 8th grade students and their families will receive a monthly mini -lesson and project to benefit a specific area of JourneyCare. Learn more about the history of this program.
Please note: Registration for the 2020/ 20201 school year will be open now through September 1. Returning families do not need to re-apply. Please contact Mary Flores to express interest or ask any questions that you might have.

Youth Advisory Board
High school students who meet online during the school year between September and May. A formal application and letter of recommendation is required. Led by staff of the JourneyCare Foundation, this group will focus on developing leadership skills through mentoring of the Juniors, developing and creating service projects and supporting the agency at Foundation and agency events.
Please note: Registration is currently closed. The next application window will begin August 2020. Please contact Molly Conley for more information.
