Ready to make a difference? You're in the right place!

At CHS, we LOVE our volunteers! When you become part of our CHS family through volunteering, you make a direct impact on children’s lives.

We have lots of opportunities throughout the state, and we’re sure you’ll find one (or two … or 10!) that speaks to you. The majority of our volunteer opportunities are remote – so you can complete them when and where it’s convenient for you!

Of course, we also have some in-person options in certain communities, too. Those change frequently, so please be sure to create a Volunteer account with us so you can stay in the know! (Don’t forget to review ourVolunteer Handbook too!)

If you’re under age 18, we have LOTS of volunteer opportunities for you – please print our Volunteer Waiver and Release Form for Minors and upload a signed copy to your volunteer account when you register.

What can you expect when you volunteer?

  • Lots of variety in opportunities
  • Lots of ways to make life-changing, transformational impacts for kids
  • FUN!
  • Several ways to engage friends, family members, colleagues and groups, if so desired
  • Flexibility
  • Appreciation
  • You WILL make a difference!
