Volunteers multiply our efforts and enrich our programs by sharing time, talent, and love with our community. We are always looking for new members of our Harbor House family. Below is a list of our current volunteer opportunities. To begin the process or to learn more, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help a kindergarten through 8th grade student navigate distance learning this fall. Volunteer virtual tutors are paired one-on-one with a child who they meet with 2-3 times per week for 30-45 minutes on Zoom. In collaboration with the classroom teacher and the parent, the tutor and the child decide what area of academics they want to focus on and they create engaging times of learning. Tutors also have a chance to develop a positive relationship with the child through ice breaker games and socio-emotional check-ins. If you have a heart of educational equity and seeing all children thrive during this difficult time, we'd love to have you join our team of virtual tutors. Training and on-going assistance are provided. Application and background check are required. To learn more about this opportunity, contact Martha Allen.
Distribute food to families who need it on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 am. Volunteers help set-up tables of pre-bagged food outside in our parking lot and then safely distribute the food to our clients. Health screenings and temperature checks are done daily for all staff and volutneers. Masks and gloves must be worn (we have both at Harbor House if needed). Social distancing protocols are followed. If you are interested, contact Martha Allen.
Like to garden? Are you handy at fixing things? We could use you for various projects around Harbor House. We have an 100+ year old, 7000 square foot facility with a large yard that always needs some attention. Health screenings and temperature checks are done daily for all staff and volunteers. Masks must be worn and social distancing protocols are followed. To learn more about this opportunity, contact Martha Allen.
