Volunteering

Volunteers are critical to our outreach programs in the community.  If you are interested in volunteering, ACAF has a number of available opportunities. Volunteers are needed in schools, weekend and afterschool programs, and throughout the summer. The times of our programs vary as well as the ages.  If you are interested in learning more about volunteering or visiting during one of our programs, contact Erin Morrison at emorrison@acafvt.org.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
