Get Involve & Stay Involve with FTC

Thank you to the dedicated volunteers at the four sites – For The Children Inc.@Barton Elementary, For The Children Inc. @1702 South Dixie Hwy., LW, FL, For The Children Inc. @ Old Osborne School, and For The Children Inc. @ Howard Park, for providing in 2012, 3854 hours of service. The value of these hours equals $32,840.60 in savings to the centers. Thank you!

Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of the Centers.
There are opportunities to work directly with the children (ages 3 to 18 years old) in the classrooms, in the office, on a variety of committees, at special events.

Administration/Fundraising/Marketing: Volunteers wishing to contribute their professional skills are also warmly welcomed. Pro-bono graphic design, writing for a variety of print and online collateral and assistance with developing and maintaining a presence in the online philanthropy and social media sites, as well as funding research would be of great assistance.

Committees and Special Events: We have a range of volunteer committees covering all aspects of fundraising and community awareness and we welcome new and enthusiastic volunteers.

Building Maintenance: Our buildings are aging and need constant maintenance. Plumbers, electricians, carpenters, painters, landscapers, etc. can provide valuable assistance.

Special Talents: We want the students in our after school and summer camp programs to enjoy the enrichment activities that will make them well rounded students. Volunteers with artistic talents – drama, music, dance, art, fitness, etc. We need you to help our next future generation of leaders, doctors, lawyers, teachers and the rest is up to you.
