Volunteer Opportunities


Williamsville’s Healthy Kids’ Running Series - For anyone needing community service hours, the Williamsville’s Healthy Kids’ Running Series is looking for volunteers.  They are looking for volunteers to help leading stretches, directing runners along the courses, helping keep kids in order at the finish line, etc.  The races take place at the Williamsville Park on Sunday afternoons from April 2 to May 7 (with no races on April 16 because of Easter).  Volunteers would need to be at the park from about 3:45-5:30 p.m.  Please see Mr. Martens if you are interested or have any other questions.


United Cerebral Palsy – Learning without Limits Day Camp - The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) offers three different and fun-filled camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.  One camp is the Learning without Limits Day Camp.  Volunteers are paired with a child who has a disability and accompany that child throughout the day at the camp.  As the campers renew friendships, participate in craft activities, utilize the UCP computer lab and go into the community on field trips, the volunteer is a constant companion for the camper.  Field trips will be educational and recreational, including visits to historical sites, behind the scenes tours of their favorite stores, and bowling.


A volunteer can sign up for just one week, certain days, or all summer.  The Learning without Limits Camp meets at the UCP center for students 6 to 21 years old who have any type of disability.  Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. starting on June 19 and ending on August 11.  If you have any questions, please see Mr. Martens.


United Cerebral Palsy – Overnight Camp - The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) offers three different and fun-filled camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.  One camp is the Overnight Camp.  Volunteers are paired one-on-one with a camper with a disability.  The camp is a unique social opportunity for campers and attendees to enjoy crafts, swimming, interacting with special guests, and meeting new friends.  The volunteer “Buddy” is a constant companion throughout camp for all activities.  This three-day, two-night camp is the only one of its kind in central Illinois.  The UCP Overnight Camp is held in two sessions, one for campers 6-13 years old on Monday, June 5, starting at 8:00 a.m., thru Wednesday, June 7, ending at 11:00 a.m.  The other camp is for campers 14-21 years old on Wednesday, June 7, starting at 6:00 p.m., thru Friday, June 9, ending at 4:00 p.m.  Both camps will be held at the Springfield Christian Assembly Campground.  Volunteers can sign up for one or both sessions of camp.  If you have any questions, please see Mr. Martens.


The Center for Youth & Family Solutions - For anyone needing community service hours, the Center for Youth & Family Solutions is seeking volunteers.  The Center for Youth & Family Solutions is a social service agency that provides strength-based, family centered social services to youth and their families in need throughout Central Illinois.  Currently, the agency serves nearly 700 individuals in Springfield and the surrounding communities.  Duties of the volunteers would include assisting with answering phones, greeting clients, performing miscellaneous clerical jobs, assisting with child care, organizing visitation room and foster care clothing closet, and other duties as assigned. If you have any questions and/or would like a volunteer application, please see Mr. Martens.
