Volunteer Information

What are the Volunteer Requirements?

In order to help during Kids Club week (and to receive a t-shirt and free childcare) we ask that you:

  • Attend one of our mandatory Kids Club Volunteer Trainings. A training is required for ALL VOLUNTEERS this year due to all the changes.
  • Attend the Junior Leader Training, if you’re a rising 6th-8th grader who’s filled out the online application and been accepted to the Junior Leader Program.
  • Available to serve ALL FOUR nights, Monday–Thursday
  • Arrive by 6:15 p.m. Monday–Thursday, unless told otherwise.
  • Have a background check on file, if age 18 or older. We will send you an email link to our online background check if needed.

When are the Training Meetings?

Kids Club Volunteer Training
Wednesday, June 2, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

This is our mandatory training for everyone volunteering during Kids Club. You’ll receive more information about this year’s Kids Club, meet your team, and learn about your role. Childcare will be provided. Note: A few teams may be asked to stay a little later than 7:30. A make-up training will be offered on Thursday, June 3 on Zoom from 7-8 p.m. or Sunday June 6 from 9:45-10:45 in the Student Center.

Junior Leader Training
Wednesday, June 2, 5:45-6:30 p.m. (Note: this is before the main volunteer training)

All Junior Leaders who have been accepted to our program must also come early at 5:45 p.m. for a mandatory training time. We will provide a pizza dinner for you. We’ll discuss ways to help you be an effective leader, answer questions, and get pumped for Kids Club week. Make-up trainings will be available on zoom on Thursday, June 3 at 7 p.m. or on Sunday, June 6 from 9:45-10:45 a.m. (Student Center), and the Junior Leaders will meet at the end of these times.

Do I Get Dinner at Kids Club?

No! We’ll only be providing a snack during one of the rotations.

Will You Have Childcare?

Yes. If you’re helping during the week of Kids Club, you’re welcome to sign up your infants through 2-year-olds for our free childcare. Note: this is only for volunteers’ children. You can register your little one online when you sign up to serve. T-shirts for childcare kids will be available for purchase when you sign up online.

TEAMS

Volunteers join one of two teams listed below, based on age:

Volunteer Team: Rising 9th Graders or Older

Anyone entering 9th grade or older is invited to serve at Kids Club. You will have an opportunity to indicate what area(s) you’d prefer to serve in. All volunteers aged 18 or older must have an approved background check on file with us. We will email you a link to our online background check if needed.

Junior Leader Program: Rising 6th-8th Graders

Our Junior Leaders bring so much life and energy to Kids Club week! That’s why we’ve designed a special leadership training program for you. All rising 6th-8th graders are required to sign up as a Jr. Leader by May 16. If accepted to the program, you are required to attend our Junior Leader Training, Kids Club Volunteer Training and meet all other volunteer requirements. Applying on time and committing to all requirements is necessary for acceptance. Limited number of spots available, so first come, first serve. Laura Miller will let you know your team by May 28. We look forward to helping you grow as a leader and find a special place to serve at Kids Club.
