Rainbow Village is committed to making sure our volunteers are well-trained and oriented to our work before we put you into action. Our Community Engagement staff coordinates all volunteer activities with staff to ensure a seamless and rewarding volunteer experience.
The mission of Rainbow Village volunteers is to serve with a passion that aids in transforming the lives of Rainbow Village families. Why volunteer?
Facilities and Grounds Support
Our campus is expansive and requires upkeep so that it remains to be a beautiful, welcoming space for families and guests. With 30 apartments and 2.51 acres, there are several maintenance and landscaping project opportunities. Volunteers with landscaping and home improvement experience are a plus. This is a great opportunity for larger volunteer groups.
Meal Preparation & Service
Once a week on a weeknight, we provide our busy families with a full dinner service. This is a great opportunity for groups, and there are two different ways to serve: Meal providers and kitchen crew. Meal providers either bring a full meal to our kitchen, or use our full commercial kitchen to cook a meal on-site. Kitchen crew assists with clean-up, prep work, and service. Meals are typically served once a week, 6:15 pm-7:00pm.
Adult Life Skills
Children & Youth Programs
The focus on education and personal success extends to our youth program, giving our resident children the chance to experience, grow, and learn. To do this, we have two options for volunteer assistance: After School and Weeknight Enrichment. Both require volunteer have experience with children, and are willing to participate on weekdays. All volunteers for Youth Programs MUST submit to a background check and additional training.
After School Duties:
Weeknight Program Duties
We can always use an extra pair of hands around the office. Your can help with administrative duties, database management, answering phones, sending thank you notes, and more. This opportunity is best suited for persons with administrative experience who are looking for an ongoing opportunity.
