This happens on an ongoing, as-needed basis: we simply meet the volunteer, keep his/her information on hand, and contact that person when we're in need of a pick-up. If you can help great, if not, great!
There are opportunities for driving locally, in Fort Collins and in various parts of the state( Denver, Westminster, Loveland, Boulder, and more).

The Family Center/La Familia hosts monthly meet-up groups for the families in our Parents As Teachers (PAT) program. During these evening meetings, parents interact and build social connections through community presentations. Many of the families and children in our PAT program are monolingual Spanish speakers so this is a wonderful opportunity for those looking to learn or practice their Spanish speaking skills! Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and clean-up, as well as interacting with kids as Childcare Assistants while their parents are in the presentation. Volunteers can expect to play games, do arts and crafts, play on our playground, and many more activities with a diverse group of kids from a wide variety of ages! Spanish language skills are beneficial but certainly not required! This meet-up happens on the third Thursday of each month. Due to the cost of background checks, it is preferable that volunteers sign up for multiple time slots but it is also not required!
