How To Volunteer and Join Our "Community as Family"

Consistency is very important in the lives of youth in foster care. Our volunteer on-boarding process ensures consistency in our approach and in building long-lasting relationships with the Peace4Kids fam!

Each year, our volunteers contribute 5000+ hours, accounting for almost 80% of our services. If you're interested in promoting peace in the lives of youth in foster care, join our community and prepare for a transformational experience!  

Primarily our volunteers connect with youth on Saturdays from 8:30am - 1:30pm in an environment that focuses on creativity, education, life skills building, health and wellness. Under the guidance of our staff, volunteers are given the tools to develop strong bonds that leave a lasting impression.
