Volunteering

Marillac relies on generous volunteers to help pursue our mission.  When you volunteer, you make a meaningful difference in a child's life.  Marillac has a variety of volunteer opportunities, both short- and long-term.

Marillac loves volunteers of all ages and levels of experience.  Please note; to protect the safety and confidentially of the kids we serve, all volunteers who interact with children must be 21 years of age or older.  Interested volunteers under the age of 21 are welcome to volunteer for Special Events and Facilities.

 

Volunteer opportunities include:

Special Events:  Lend a hand before or during a fundraiser for Marillac, such as our annual Easter Egg 5K and Enchanted Evening Gala.  Event volunteers may assist with: securing ticket sales or auction items, checking in guests, selling "raffle" tickets, and other fun activities.

Marillac Ladies Auxiliary:  Work directly with kids and the Development Department.  Members of the Auxiliary volunteer in our Library and Little Store providing special social activities for the children and adolescents we serve.  In addition, the Auxiliary sponsors fundraising events that benefit kids served by Marillac.

Facilities:  Help our hardworking Maintenance and Housekeeping Departments with various tasks that include; working in our clothing closet, gardening, painting, washing windows, hanging objects, etc.

Reading Buddy:  Help youth with reading activities.  Reading Buddy volunteers visit weekly, usually during school hours, to provide support in the classroom and promote the importance of reading and learning.  This single activity can bolster a child's confidence and learning skills.

Birthday Club:  Make any kid feel special on his/her birthday by providing a gift or treat.  The joy brought will have a lasting impact!

Mentor A Child:  Develop a meaningful, healthy one-on-one relationship with one of our kids over the course of his/her stay with Marillac.  Mentors are encouraged to visit their mentees regularly in order to provide consistent and reliable support.  Common mentor-mentee activities include; playing board or video games, playing outside or in the gym, and doing arts/crafts.
