As a non-profit organization, we simply couldn’t operate without the help of generous volunteers! Below is a list of volunteer opportunities at the Children’s Advocacy Center. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Andrea Torres, Event & Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-393-6123. Andrea can help you with a number of different opportunities to volunteer with us! You must be 18 years old to volunteer at the CAC building.

You will be responsible for greeting clients as they enter our building for an appointment. This position includes all reception responsibilities, client support, and clerical projects.

Kids Have Rights team volunteer
These volunteers are committed to supporting our Body Safety program "Kids Have Rights" throughout the year. We ask for a 1-year commitment minimum (more is appreciated). You are trained to facilitate our program for students K-4. You may also choose not to teach the classes and support the program by organizing and preparing the materials needed for the educators.
Any person, group, or organization that provides service through donations, fundraising, or time spent doing a one-time service project. This may include such things as seasonal decorating, planting flower beds, hosting a donation drive for the Care Closet, or a group volunteer day at the center completing various projects. This is an opportunity to get involved together with your friends for a day of giving.

We currently hold (3) main fundraising events annually. Each event has a separate event committee that meets anywhere from 5-7 times before each event. Time is spent planning event decorations, soliciting donations, sponsorships, and new event attendees. We will work together organizing all event details (Usually of a 4-5 month span). You can choose which event will be the best fit for you or join all three!
