Change a Life, Change Your Life
Are you a passionate individual looking to impact the youth and community of Stockton? We are always looking to find individuals vested in making a lasting impact and strive to connect your interest and passion with our purpose and mission!
We are seeking volunteers that can commit to serving Mondays through Saturdays for at minimum of two hours. We also encourage volunteers to commit to becoming members of The City Center in order to better understand our facility and build relationships with other members. While this may seem strict, we do this so we can raise the standard for the programs and opportunities that we provide. We know this is a large commitment so we encourage you to please think carefully about whether this commitment level is realistic with your current and anticipated schedule.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
The ideal volunteer for The City Center is engaging, committed, and self-motivated. Someone who has a passion for being a part of the solution for our community and inspires others to do the same. The City Center is a fun, active environment with lots of different activities taking place at any given time. While our facility is always staffed, volunteers are often working with the youth and potentially leading programs and our staff may not always be able to stop what they’re doing to provide specific details. Successful volunteers are those that are able to jump in and help with whatever activity is taking place with minimal direction.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The City Center provides a high energy environment with anywhere between 50 and 200 youth members in the evenings as well as several adult members throughout each day. Because of the nature of our facility, we often have members who frequently attend throughout the week; allowing us to build long-lasting and life-changing relationships with our members. Our goal is that you begin to build relationships with many of the wonderful people you serve during your time volunteering at the City Center.
All volunteers interested in partnering with us will be directly interacting with our youth members in various ways. Due to this, we do require a background check for all volunteers. There is an initial cost associated with this of $38.00 dollars. We always want to ensure the safety and security of our programs and facility and this helps us to put all parents and members at ease. We do ask that our volunteers comply with this. This step is performed AFTER the initial application. To get started, simply click the "Join the Team!" button below.
