WHAT YOU'RE SIGINING UP FOR
About The Volunteer Program
Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation was founded by volunteers and runs mostly, with the help of volunteers. Without the help of our volunteers (both general and on the Board), we couldn’t support foster children in the capacity we do.
The YC4KF volunteer program is an evolving one. Volunteers are emailed volunteer opportunities and can also log into the volunteer portal to view upcoming opportunities here. YC4KF volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks based on availability and skills. Most of the current opportunities do no directly work with children but directly impacts them.
Volunteers receive everything they need to flourish and are honored quarterly (volunteer highlight) and annually (volunteer of the year) at an appreciation luncheon. We strive to build a community were volunteers feel connected, empowered, and supported.
