    Here’s why YOU should consider volunteering here, and how to get started. 

    Did you know? There are many scientifically proven benefits of volunteering, including improved mental, emotional, and physical health.
    Which makes volunteering a great idea for everyone!

    At Crossroads Center for Children, we recognize that volunteers are an integral part of connecting our school to the community. We are grateful for the many parents, grandparents, and community members who offer their time to benefit our program. Volunteers help in many capacities here, such as serving on the Board of Trustees, conducting and helping with our fundraising events, and working on a myriad of special projects. Additionally, we have some volunteers who are helping in the classrooms, supplying extra helping hands on a regular and ongoing basis. 

    There are several current opportunities for volunteers, both in the classrooms and behind the scenes. In order to protect our body of students, staff and volunteers, we follow a structured process with our potential volunteers that adheres carefully to O.C.F.S. (New York State Office of Children and Family Services) and N.Y.S.E.D. (New York State Education Department) regulations, and helps us to develop a volunteer program that can best serve our students.

    We need volunteers for so many tasks! Can you help?
