Head Start Volunteers
NeighborImpact’s Head Start program builds success through child-focused, family-centered services that enhance social competence, school readiness, overall health and well-being. We have 25 classrooms in Bend, Redmond, Prineville, Sunriver, and La Pine.
Head Start volunteers will be provided with classroom training. Volunteers can help design their role in the classroom based on their interest, whether it be small groups, working one-on-one with a high needs student, doing art projects, reading aloud, or simply serving as a classroom helper.
Head Start volunteers are asked to serve on a weekly basis, as their schedule allows, during the school year, anywhere from 1-4 hours per week. If you are unable to work in the classroom, we also have projects you can work on from home that make a direct impact in the classroom. Projects range from building light tables or quiet spaces to cutting pieces for felt board literacy activities.
If you would like to volunteer with our Head Start program please fill out the application below and one of our volunteer managers will respond to your application in 48 hours.
