There’s always a way to contribute at VOCEL. We’re looking for volunteers to help us in the classroom, at special events and behind the scenes. The time and effort you give—big or small—adds up to a new opportunity for VOCEL’s children.


Volunteering in the classroom gives you an inside look at VOCEL, where you’ll help to promote learning through conversation and play. You’ll interact directly with children and foster relationships, making this an ideal opportunity for ongoing volunteerism.

Activities include:

  • Art & creation
  • Food experience & science
  • Music & movement
  • Reading & storytelling
  • Writing & drawing

Special events

Held across the city in collaboration with our partners, our special events are a perfect entry point for limited availability or family members interested in these important occasions.

Events include:

  • Field trips
  • Holiday celebrations
  • Musical performances
  • Parent nights

Behind the scenes

From the program operations to donor outreach, the day-to-day strategy and planning that makes VOCEL possible is extensive. The requirements for these opportunities vary in both time commitment and skill level—if you’re interested in a particular role, contact us.

Responsibilities include:

  • Classroom cleaning & organization
  • Donor outreach
  • Filing & office organization
  • Grant research & writing
  • Mailings
