Part-Time Volunteering

As a part-time volunteer at SACH, you are welcome to come in for weekly shifts for as much time as you'd like (with a minimum commitment of 3 weeks). Some of our part-time volunteers have already been with us for more than 3 years!

As a part-time volunteer, shifts are scheduled Sunday – Thursday. There are two shifts:

Morning shifts: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

9:00 - Arrive, put belongings in playroom, check in with Iris to see if there are any groups to prepare for, and start an activity (there may be one already out and waiting for you depending on the full-time volunteer).

10:30 - Work with other volunteers to assess whether a new activity is necessary.

11:45 - Clean up time, work with other volunteers to engage the children to help put all of the toys away into the playroom and wipe down chairs and tables. Once the toys are put into the playroom, please have the children go to the kitchen to wash their hands for lunch. While they are doing that, please spend the last ten minutes of the shift using the wipes to clean the toys that were used in the morning. This is very important so that we do not spread any extra germs in the house. Then, please put all toys back in their proper places on the shelves.

Afternoon shifts: 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

4:00 - Arrive, put belongings in playroom, check with Iris to see if there are any groups to prepare for, and start an activity (there may be one already out and waiting for you depending on the full-time volunteer)

5:45 - Clean up time, work with other volunteers to engage the children to help put all of the toys out into the playroom and wipe down chairs and tables. Once the toys are put into the playroom, please have the children go to the kitchen to wash their hands for dinner. While they are doing that, please spend the last ten minutes of the shift using the wipes to clean the toys that were used. This is very important so that we do not spread any extra germs in the house. Then, please put all toys back in their proper places on the shelves.
