    The Volunteer Program at Crossroads provides volunteer opportunities to our community. 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. 

    We are excited to have a growing volunteer base at Crossroads, 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.

    With this in mind, you are invited to send a letter of inquiry or a resume if you are interested in volunteering with us. This can be emailed to Vickir@Crossroadcenter.org . We will contact you to come in for an interview and discuss opportunities that you might be interested in.

    Volunteer applicants will follow an application process that includes providing 3 recommendation letters, TB testing and a physical, fingerprinting and a background check. Volunteers must agree to fulfill training requirements that we will apprise you of.  Volunteers will not be permitted to begin service until all required pieces are submitted and approved.

    It might sound like a lot, but most would agree that our children are worth every bit of effort!
