Volunteer

volunteer2Two Rivers Head Start Agency encourages volunteering in all service areas of Head Start, Early Head Start and the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) program. From its beginning in 1965, Two Rivers has actively promoted the use of parent and community volunteers to benefit Head Start children, and families in our communities… and to give staff a helping hand!

In order to continue our service to the community, we depend on donations of volunteer time and monetary donations; and as a Head Start Grantee, we are required to generate 20% of our operating budget from donations. Two Rivers Head Start Agency is a tax-exempt 501(C) charitable organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Volunteers can support the Two Rivers’ communities by:

  • Assisting Teachers with classroom activities or reading to the children*
  • Helping Family Services staff to recruit new Head Start children and families
  • Supporting Health Services staff by providing professional health services
  • Starting a drive to collect new mittens, hats, shoes, books or other items for children
  • Organizing a food drive or a collection of personal hygiene items for the Agency’s food pantries
  • And many other ways!
