Classroom Support

We welcome visitors who can:

  • Read to children or play a musical instrument during class time
  • Provide help to teachers during class time
  • Play with children to allow parents to focus on a parent education topic

Young Scholars Program support

Volunteers serve as mentors and role models to our Young Scholars, who are elementary aged children.  Monthly meetings during the school year support an age appropriate academic and social-emotional curriculum.  Roles range from a one-time field trip chaperone to a small group mentor.

Help with our Outdoor Gardens

Do you love to garden?  We have vegetable and flower gardens at our three sites that would love some extra TLC.  Volunteer help can be anything from weeding, planting, harvesting, to leading activities that engage the children in the love of outdoors and healthy eating. 

Organize an Employee Event

Companies and organizations in the Bay Area enjoy working with Family Connections to organize a group event. This is a great way to create a team building exercise while giving back to the community. Projects include:

  • A site beautification or spruce up day
  • Painting and maintenance projects
  • Helping at our preschool graduation ceremony
  • Sponsoring a holiday party

Plan a Special Party

Do you have a favorite holiday? Why not get a group together to plan a special party at one of our schools? We can assist you by recommending art projects, snacks, and goody-bag ideas.

Join a Board Committee or Task Force

Volunteers with skills or interest in strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, financial planning, and early childhood education or parent engagement can support the board by joining a Committee or Task Force.

Participate in our Fundraisers

Volunteers are needed to support Family Connections annual Night of Dreams celebration event and other fundraisers to raise funds and awareness for our programs.

“Every mother asks herself why children do not come with an instructional manual to know how to raise them. At Family Connections not only do they think about the well being and development of our children, but also in us - the adults. With the tools they offer us, we can develop our own instructional manual.”

Veronica Rivera, mother of two children ages 5 and 2
