Volunteering at YC4KF
Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation was founded by volunteers and runs mostly, with the help of volunteers. Without the help of our volunteers (both general and on the Board), we couldn’t support foster children in the capacity we do.
The YC4KF volunteer program is an evolving one. Volunteers are emailed volunteer opportunities to sign up for. YC4KF volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks based on availability and skills. Most of the current opportunities do not directly work with children but directly impact them.
Volunteers receive everything they need to flourish and are honored quarterly (volunteer highlight) and annually (volunteer of the year) at an appreciation luncheon. We strive to build a community where volunteers feel connected, empowered, and supported.
General Volunteer: A general volunteer helps when they can and where they can for a variety of roles.
Events Volunteer: An Events volunteer will perform a wide variety of duties pre and post-event. Events include YC4KF sanctioned and/or supported events such as the Annual Gala, 5k Fun Run, Christmas Drive, tabling events, and other nonprofit events we support.
YC4KF Ambassador: A YC4KF Ambassador is a volunteer who is responsible for engaging with donors, engaging with other volunteers, attending networking events on behalf of the Foundation, and engaging on the Foundation’s social media. These volunteers help with awareness spreading and generating positive experiences surrounding the Foundation and its mission.
Speaker’s Bureau Volunteer: A Speaker’s Bureau volunteer is responsible for finding and securing speaking opportunities in the community for the Foundation and giving presentations. These volunteers will be trained in public speaking and all functions of YC4KF.
Fundraising Volunteer: A fundraising volunteer will be responsible for helping the Foundation raise funds for its programs through grant writing and corporate sponsorships. This volunteer will work closely with the Development Director.
Creative Team Volunteer: Volunteers on the Creative Team are responsible for a variety of skill-based tasks assigned to them based on their interests or skillset. Members of the creative team will work closely with the YC4KF staff. Members will also aid the YC4KF Fundraising and Events Volunteers with the creation of promotional material and will attend events to capture video and photography.
Grants for Kids Volunteer: A Grants for Kid volunteer will work very closely with the Grants for Kids program manager and committee. This volunteer will be responsible for participating in the approval/denial decision-making process of certain grant cases throughout the year.
