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 trained leaders 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, participate in intergenerational activities with nursing home patients and work on projects to bring a little joy to our patients and their families. Participants agree to participate in each meeting. Pre-registration and permission forms required.

Programs include:

JourneyCare Juniors
4th through 8th grade students who meet monthly during the school year between September and May. Learn more about this program.
Please note: Registration is currently closed. The next application window will begin August 2020. Please contact Mary Flores for more information.

Youth Advisory Board
High school students who meet monthly during the school year between October 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. 


Adult Leaders are needed for each program. Adults willing to lead programs and supervise participants must go through the JourneyCare’s full Volunteer Training. This assures all our leaders are background checked and understand the mission and vision of the organization. Click here to apply as an adult volunteer.
