Centro could not be successful in providing services to the community without extensive contributions from volunteers and interns. Approximately 17,000 hours of service were provided primarily by parents of children enrolled in Head Start programs throughout Centro’s service system.
People volunteer for many reasons. Many feel compassion for others in need, some want to "give back" and others are passionate about issues facing our communities. Whatever the reason, we can help you get involved in an activity that matches your interests and skills.
The duties and responsibilities of volunteers are divided into four program areas shown below:
Language Story – Story Telling Administration
Indoor and Outdoor Play
Cultural Awareness – Bilingual Teaching
Life Skills for Parents
Life Skills for Teens
Literacy – Family and Community
