Become a Carousel Center Volunteer!

The Carousel Center has flexible and meaningful opportunities for those interested in volunteering their time and unique talents toward restoring hope to children who have been abused.

As the Carousel Center continues to grow, so too does the need for dedicated volunteers. Children visiting the Center range in ages 2-18 years old. Volunteers play a vital role in creating a safe environment for children to receive services. The Carousel Center volunteers:

  • Range in age from 18-80 years old.
  • Use their creativity and talents when working with children, staff, other volunteers and members of the community.
  • Gain community service hours.
  • Generously give their time and attention to children in need.
  • Are carefully screened for those positions working with children.

If you would like to help please fill out the form below and we are certain we will find a way for you to make a difference. Volunteers will be subject to a background check and a drug test.
