Unemployed? Hours recently cut back? Or maybe you are not affected by these hard economic times but want to help … you just don't know how. Becoming a YWCA Clark County volunteer is one way to help your community. YWCA volunteers learn new skills for their resumes, meet and network with a diverse group of community members, as well as become actively involved in improving the lives of Clark County residents.
YWCA Clark County invites everyone interested in learning about volunteer opportunities to attend the Introduction to Volunteer Service on Tuesday, April 7, 6 – 8:30 p.m. in the agency's community room at 3609 Main St., Vancouver. This event is free to the public, and no reservation is needed.
This spring there is a strong need for adult volunteers to:
Advocate for adult and youth victims of sexual assault.
Represent the best interest of an abused or neglected child by becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate).
Assist youth who are aging out of foster care.
Other ongoing volunteer needs include providing resources and encouragement to inmates at the Clark County Jail, helping out in the Y's Care preschool classroom, assisting with special events, and working behind the scenes to keep the agency running smoothly.
Several programs will offer free training for new volunteers in April and May.
