In addition to its professional staff, the Center relies on a core group of volunteers to help support the Center’s mission and daily operations.
There are ample opportunities for people to volunteer that vary in commitment level and interest. Through our children and youth services, volunteers can serve as a “safe” adult for children who have experienced abuse or trauma or mentor an adolescent dealing with substance abuse issues. Community members also volunteer in our adult services and programs by providing support to clients. Other volunteer opportunities include providing administrative support for our programs or volunteering at special events and community functions throughout the year.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Programs and services
- Group service projects
We are currently recruiting volunteers for the Center's largest fundraiser of the year, Knoxville Challenger, which will take place Sunday, November 5 - Sunday, November 12. This event is not possible without support of community volunteers, like you. For volunteer information on Challenger including a list of opportunities, dates and times, please click here.
Special Interest Volunteer
Do you have a special skill (pottery, scrapbooking, etc.) you'd like to teach? If so, there may be opportunities to help teach classes on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoons to members at Friendship House, the Center's peer support center.
All volunteers are requested to commit a 3 month minimum to the volunteer program and will be required to pass a background check. To show interest in this opportunity, please click here.
