General Volunteers

Do you have a special interest or talent? You can use it today to benefit people in our community! Share your ideas with us, and we’ll find a project that works for you. We also have general projects identified and would love to hear from you.

Event-Specific Volunteers

Do you want to help out, but have a limited schedule? Consider volunteering for a special event to make a short but powerful contribution to people building their emotional skills. Annual event volunteering opportunities include Global Youth Service Day,  the FSRV Bike, Car & Truck Show, and the Family SERVICE VIP Dinner (formerly known as the Celebrity Tip Off).  Duties may include set-up and break-down of events, developing marketing materials, transportation, or guest management.
