Volunteer

Music. Arts/Crafts. Gardening. Literacy. Handywork. Each of us has special talents – things we can do to make a difference in our community. Four Rivers’ volunteer program has opportunities that fit your talents, experiences, personality and lifestyle. Volunteer once a year through special events and presentations or a few hours a week through assisting in classroom instruction or administrative support. Either way, you’ll find meaning in any of the individual and group volunteer opportunities available at Four Rivers. Four Rivers has volunteer opportunities for people with the busiest of schedules to individuals who would like to dedicate more time…both create lasting impact.

Whether your goal is to help advance a worthy cause or to develop as a person, volunteering at Four Rivers is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities and challenges
  • Create positive change in your community
  • Build relationships and networks that last a lifetime
  • Share your skills with others
  • Enrich your education
  • Build your skills and your resume

“Why I Volunteer”
“My favorite part about my volunteer work is when the children express interest in the stories and respond, comment and interact with me during story time. I also like it when I see them in the store or church or someplace else with their parents and the parents recognize my name, explaining their children tell them about Mr. Paul who reads to them. I’ve made an impression and affected their lives in a small way at least; at most, they’ve learned to appreciate reading and books.”
Paul Meyers
Paul has been volunteering at KidStuff Preschool where he works with the children and reads them stories. The reason he volunteers is to use his time, abilities and skills to help children learn. Paul has learned his obvious interesting way to read through his studies at Johnson Bible College. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies and Communications.
