Gala Volunteers; Saturday, October 25, 2014
ACS's annual Gala - our largest fundraiser of the year - is on October 25, and we need your help! Volunteer shifts vary from 10:00am - 11:00pm, and duties range from helping with setting up the ballroom to helping guests find their seats amongst the 80 tables to assisting with the Live Auction/Fund-A-Need. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering.
ACS Guild Member
The ACS Guild is a membership-based volunteer group that provides multiple opportunities each month to volunteer - both indirectly and directly with our kids. For more information, click here.
Community Group Volunteers
Community Group Volunteers can host activities on-site for our kids as well as sponsor off-site activities. Groups are also able to volunteer indirectly by participating in a facilities-related project. Download the information packet for details.
Direct Service Volunteers
Direct Service Volunteers work directly with the kids either in our cottages, our Care Academy, or our therapeutic classroom at our Strong Start facility. It's a great way to get engaged and build a rapport with the youth in our care. All applicants must attend an Info Session, complete a volunteer application, and attend the Volunteer Orientation. Info Sessions are typically scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at Austin Children's Shelter. Our next Orientation date is Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 9:00am - 5:00pm at Austin Children's Shelter. Please attend an Info Session and have the application completed prior to RSVP'ing for the Orientation. Applications are available at the Info Sessions. Amanda Lewis can be reached at email@example.com or at 512-927-4712.
Due to a recent DFPS
policy change, all Direct Service Volunteers are now required to submit an FBI
background check before volunteering. While ACS will cover the $41.95 fee, we would appreciate any donation to help off-set this cost in order to ensure as much of our
funds as possible go to supporting programs for our youth.
