Hands-On Help at Iowa Center for Children’s Justice
Volunteers at the Iowa Center for Children’s Justice work directly with our staff to support children experiencing the stress of divorce or custody disputes. We welcome all kinds of involvement—from helping teach workshops for children to daily administrative tasks. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities below.
Divorce Workshops for Children
This is a great opportunity if you are interested in working directly with children.
Volunteers co-facilitate our 2-hour divorce workshops for children with a trained staff member. These classes are required for children ages 6-16 whose parents are divorcing in Polk County. Workshops and curricula are grouped by grade level and are typically held on weekends and weekday evenings at Iowa Center for Children’s Justice.
Volunteers are required to pass a background check and complete training prior to volunteering. For more information about volunteering for workshops, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Administrative Tasks and Mailing Projects
There are many ways to make an impact on children other than teaching workshops. Administrative help is essential to our organization. Our small staff leans on the help of volunteers to help achieve our mission of supporting kids and strengthening families.
A few times a year, we need help stuffing and stamping envelopes for large mailings. And year-round, we could always use a little help in the office entering data, making copies or preparing workshop materials. To find a volunteer task that’s right for you, email email@example.com
