Program Volunteer: Volunteers are needed at our week-long programs and shorter programs to help with many of the necessities of camp. They help with food preparations, overseeing chore groups, helping set up for activities and helping with some of the activities. Our programs couldn't operate without the support of these critical volunteers.
Volunteer Instructor: We always welcome those who will come and teach as a volunteer. We've had people volunteer all summer or just to come in a teach one skill during a program. Your gift of time and talent will make a significant difference in the lives of the children and families we teach. Our Teen Skills class needs instructors with many specialties so the children can come learn from you throughout the week. If you'd like to come and share your talents, we'd love to have you!
Intern: Teens and young adults come to volunteer for our intern program. These volunteers are integral to the program operations. They do much of the preparation for various activities, tend the central fire and other important tasks. They also assist with the groups in implementing the program activities.
Instructors In Training: At Children of the Earth you must be at least 18 years of age to be hired as an instructor. We have many teens who have been long time participants and have a great deal to offer but haven't yet turned 18 so you can apply to be an instructor in training. Instructors in Training work with the instructor teams to plan and implement the program. Although the responsibilities are modified, Instructors in Training get hands on experience working with children and teaching the skills. It's a wonderful way to improve your own skills while giving back to the children.
If you are interested in volunteering for a program, please complete our volunteer application and submit it to email@example.com. Please note, all program volunteers are subject to reference and criminal record checks, the same as our paid staff.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are also needed in other areas such as photography, grant writing, fund raising or others that support the organization overall. We are hoping to create a new COTEF video so would love to speak with anyone experienced in filming and creating videos. To volunteer for any of these types of activities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Vouchers are good for up to 1 year and are transferable as long as you give us notice of a change in name on the voucher.
