We strive to create Safe, Clean, Age-appropriate environments where Friendships & Fun are developed. We recognize that everyone has interests and abilities that go beyond a certain serving position. We hope our application procedure will help us get to know you better.

Safety is key 

As one of our core values we aim to be sure all volunteers are suitable to serve with kids. All staff and volunteers are required to complete the screening process, no exceptions. We desire to provide a safe environment by carefully screening staff and volunteers, and by having them follow appropriate policies and procedures. This protects adults and kids alike by eliminating opportunity for inappropriate conduct to occur.
