Flashback Volunteers ~ Friday, February 21, 2014; 7:30 pm - 12:30 am
We need about 10 more volunteers to help with one of our most fun events of the year - our Flashback Retro Dance Party! Flashback is an 80's and 90's dance party at The Parish that directly benefits the kids and families in our care. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old. Duties may include assisting with registration, helping with the silent auction, serving as a VIP bouncer, or other needed duties. Please contact Lindsay Contreras at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
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
for groups in the community that wish to volunteer include
caring for our campus and introducing new activities to staff and
clients. Download the information packet for details.
Direct Service Volunteers
Direct Service Volunteers work in the cottages with the kids. It's a great way to get engaged and build a rapport with the youth in our care. All applicants must complete the Volunteer Application, have a one-on-one meeting with Amanda Lewis - our Staff and Volunteer Training Coordinator, and attend the Volunteer Orienation. Our next Orientation date is Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 9:00 - 5:00 at Austin Children's Shelter. Please begin the application process and meet with Amanda prior to RSVP'ing for Orientation. 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. In order to ensure as much of our
funds as possible go to supporting programs for our youth, ACS will no longer
be able to pay for these background checks. Each volunteer must now pay
the $41.95 fee. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you will
still consider volunteering with the kids and families in our care.
