Volunteers help us carry out our mission more efficiently. We are grateful for the support from our community and welcome your interest in either of the opportunities below.

Divorce Workshops Co-Facilitator
A Kids First staff attorney leads the divorce workshops with the assistance of a trained volunteer. In this role, volunteers work directly with children to help them understand and cope with their parents’ separation and divorce. Volunteers can lead a variety of games, discussions, role-plays, read-aloud sessions or activities as they feel comfortable. Each 2½ hour workshop has 8-10 children, and there are separate classes for grade levels K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-11. You will be able to positively impact children in a very direct way by helping with the workshops.

Workshop volunteers must pass a background check and be fully trained. Contact our office manager, Kandy Sands, at kandy@kidsfirstiowa.org or 319-365-5437 to receive an application for the co-facilitator position.
