If you want to play an important role in providing a safe and caring place for children to play and grow, read on!

Help is needed at the Phoenix Children's Project Community Center on Saturday afternoons. The Saturday Afternoon program serves approximately 25 to 30 children, ages 5 - 13. You will serve snacks to the children and supervise them while they play indoors (air-conditioned) and/or outdoors. You might lead arts and crafts, play board games, or shoot hoops with some of the older children.

These neighborhood children desperately need a positive place to spend time and play – TO SIMPLY BE KIDS. This poverty-stricken neighborhood has no parks or any safe place to them to ‘hang out’.  Our Center’s mission is vital to the well-being and growth of these kids - many of these kids just want to talk and want someone to listen.

June dates needed: June 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and/or 29th. Commitment of time from 12:30-3pm. 

July dates needed: July 6th, 13th, 20th and/or 27th. 12:30-3pm commitment.

You are welcome to choose one or more of these dates, based on your availability. Also, If you want to help serve lunch on one of these days, let us know! You’ll need to arrive an hour earlier at 11:30 (and stay until 3pm). 

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS: You must be at least 18 years old to volunteer in the Saturday Afternoon program. To take the first step in becoming a volunteer with Phoenix Children's Project, please email helpingkids@phoenixchildren.org to request a volunteer application/profile. New volunteers complete a 15 minute orientation on the first day that they volunteer.
