Who Can Volunteer at EOYDC?

Anyone, at almost any age, can be a volunteer at EOYDC. We encourage children and youth as well as adults to help in whatever ways they can.

What Can I Do To Help?

There are lots of things you can do to help us here at EOYDC! We always take into consideration the kinds of activities in which you have special interests or abilities, but we also ask our volunteers to be open and flexible about the kinds of assignments they will accept. EOYDC utilizes volunteers in the following departments throughout the Center:

When Can I Start?

That all depends on whether there is an immediate need for your assistance or if we need to place your name on our “Call” list and let you know whether a volunteer opportunity has become available.  There are many times during the year when help from volunteers is needed, so you probably won’t have to wait very long, if at all.

How Do I Join?

Joining the Volunteer Club is Easy!  Simply fill out our Volunteer Commitment Application which lets us know what your interests are, what special skills or experience you may have and what days and times you are available and that’s it!  We will contact you shortly and let you know whether we have an assignment for you immediately or if we need your help for a future project.
