Every year, countless volunteers provide thousands of hours of support in the form of cleaning and repairs, meal preparation, office support, tutoring and mentoring. Children’s Community School could not afford to pay for the invaluable services provided by these generous individuals, and we are truly grateful.
Due to the COVID-19 Protocols, volunteers must adhere to the current CDC and Waterbury DPH Guidelines which actively change. Currently all individuals must be masked, vaccinated, asymptomatic of any common illness, must take temperatures, and sign in for contact tracing. Call the school for current guidelines. We appreciate all volunteers. Thank you for helping us to keep our community safe.
If you are interested in any of the following volunteer opportunities, please contact us right away.

We credit our Mentoring Program with providing the crucial support that enables our graduates to complete high school on time.

We are currently looking for a Volunteer Librarian or a group of Librarians that can read to children and help them check out books once a week or every other week.
