Group Volunteer

Corporate Groups play a significant role in our volunteer program. There are opportunities for corporate groups to support our client events, field days, field trips, beautification days, and more. AFC hosts four special events for clients each year which include our Spring Talent Show, Summer Prom, Fall Ball, and Winter Holiday Carnival. Volunteers are instrumental in helping in decorating, preparing, and serving food, assisting youth with costumes, setting up games, securing items as prizes for clients, and with cleanup. Volunteer Groups also host field trips for clients, supervised and supported by staff. There are also opportunities for corporate volunteer groups to sponsor events for clients. 

 

Community and Faith-Based Groups are welcome and encouraged to join our volunteer program. Groups can help staff in creating a homelike environment for our clients. Groups can help with beautification days, meal service, holiday and gift card drive, and many other ways. 

 

Student Groups can help us access resources in the larger community by hosting fundraisers or donation drives for much needed items, or by helping to promote and attending our community rallies.
