Volunteers play a vital role at Casa working alongside staff members, other volunteers and the Latino community to jointly achieve our goals.
We are so excited that you are interested in volunteering with us. Our volunteers usually work with us between 5 and 40 hours a month. Spanish is helpful but not necessary. They help with any of these: Assist with children and teens in our youth programs, tutor or provide ESL in homes or classrooms, work with our Emergency Response Team, do office tasks, help with communications, represent Casa at events, drive clients to appointments, translate, assist clients to fill out forms and use computers, plan and attend events, join the fundraising committee, provide legal assistance to clients (attorneys only).
Note that volunteering with Casa San Jose also requires a Pennsylvania criminal record check, a Pennsylvania child abuse history clearance, and an FBI criminal background check. Those are fairly quick to get – information on all three can be found here.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. We greatly appreciate your support!
