  • Help BuildProject Child Coalition – Project Child is a broad-based coalition whose mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect. Volunteers are needed for help with bulk mailings and other administrative tasks. Project Child also needs volunteers for a variety of planning committees and for several large events, including the Tortoise and Hare 5K Run/Walk. Contact Project Child.
  • Bucks County Youth Shelter needs volunteers to spend one-on-one time with our kids, playing games, helping with homework, or just being a friend. Contact Lorrie Reddy at the Shelter.
  • Be a Mentor. The children we serve are facing today’s difficult world with many more hurdles to overcome than others their age. Volunteering in the Child Mentor Program provides you the opportunity to offer support, role modeling, tutoring, recreational activities, and life skills development on an outreach basis in the child’s home or community. By volunteering your time to build a supportive relationship with a youth, you can help them reach their full potential and thrive in the community. The program is demanding: Training is required and the children need a commitment of four hours a week, but the rewards are immense. Contact Nikki Graaf.
  • Student Internships are available for qualified graduate and undergraduate students. Internships are offered in human services, education, recreation, administration, information technology, and public relations. Learn more from our Internship Manual, or contact Elizabeth Allen.
