Volunteers

Short-Term Volunteering

  • Spanish Translation –

    We are looking for a few intelligent, fluent Spanish-speakers who could translate our intake forms and resource pamphlets from English into Spanish. Translation can be done here in the office, or we could send you the information electronically and you could volunteer at home. There are several Spanish-speakers at ReadyKids who can proof read the final product, if you would like help. Email Emily Harpster, Senior Philanthropy Officer, or call (434) 296-4118 if you are interested!

  • Snack Drive

    We’re looking for active and self-directed volunteers to lead a healthy snack drive in their community. Most kids arrive at counseling appointments directly after school and are hungry. They do much better in therapy sessions with a healthy snack in their bellies. That’s where YOU come in!  Can you help gather snacks for us to share? Examples of snacks include Goldfish, Cheese-Its, Pirate Booty, Pretzels, Raisins, Granola Bars, Nutrigrain Bars, Applesauce, Veggie Sticks, Wheat Crackers, Ritz Bitz Cheese Crackers or Graham crackers. (Please no nut products, due to allergies.) Preferably, snacks would be individually packaged for ease of distribution. Email Emily Harpster, Senior Philanthropy Officer, or call (434) 296-4118 if you are interested!
