Children For Change Volunteer Opportunities

Children for Change is dedicated to helping others in our community. C4C invites families in participating schools (RVSD, Reed Union Schools and Davidson) and active C4C alumni to sign up to volunteer on one of our curated volunteer opportunities.  All are appropriate for kids of all ages (except where noted).

Important notes for signing up for one of our C4C curated family volunteer opportunities:

  • Please indicate the TOTAL number of people volunteering. For example, if you are a family of 4 volunteering, please indicate 4 as the total number of volunteers.
  • All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Information about our Partners:
