Share your Time and Talents with ChildStrive

You make the difference! Volunteers are a crucial part of how ChildStrive supports families in our community. We welcome groups, individuals, companies, and families to join us.

ChildStrive’s commitment to diversity and equity is central to our work, and volunteers are our partners in this work.

ChildStrive serves families and children of many races and ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identifies, ability and religious beliefs. We seek volunteers who reflect that diversity. We know that everyone is at a different place in their learning about dismantling the systems of white supremacy and other forms of oppression, but our expiation is that all volunteers bring a personal commitment to continued learning and action.
