Short-Term Volunteering

  • Childcare for Parenting Group –

    ReadyKids is holding a Trauma Informed Parenting Group this fall that includes childcare provided on site. Parents who attend this group learn to help their child heal from trauma and how they can best support their kids during difficult times. Childcare volunteers will watch the kids while their parents attend the group. Possible activities include reading books, playing games, and art activities. This is an eight week group that meets on Thursdays from September 28-November 16, 5:00-6:30 pm. Questions? Contact Eileen Barber 


  • Spanish Translation –

    We are looking for a few  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 Eileen Barber, Communications 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, 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 Eileen Barber, Communications Officer, or call 434.296.4118 if you are interested!
