Do you have time or talent you would like to share? There are children that could benefit from your time and attention. Read more to see how you can help!
During Patriots' After School Program, we would love to have volunteers who like to...
  • Play board games or cards
  • Spend time building legos with kids
  • Organize and teach arts and crafts
  • Help kids practice their basketball or soccer skills
  • Organize and help with games
  • Help with homework
  • Organize and teach science projects
  • Read with younger children
  • Lead dance or cheerleading groups
Please note: For many of our volunteer projects, especially those working with children, we may require a background check (performed only with your written consent). If you prefer not to have a background check done, it will limit the ways in which you can volunteer. Thank you for your understanding!
We can always use volunteers to help with our sports programs! Currently, we are in need of Basketball volunteers who can...
  • Help with the scoreboard
  • Mentor
  • Assist Coaches
Volunteer for projects!
Would you prefer to volunteer your time in other ways? Occasionally we need extra help with special projects and events. Below are some examples of how you can make an impact with just a few hours of your time. Sign up to be an 'as needed' volunteer, and we'll contact you to see if you are available when we need extra hands!
  • Interior wall painting and picture hanging
  • Small repairs and maintenance projects
  • Small grounds improvement projects such as planting flower beds
  • Set up and/or clean up for events
  • Stuffing envelopes and helping with mailings
  • 'Spring' cleaning to organize supplies and crafts
