With more than 200 fundraisers and special events each year, we're always on the look out for people who are committed, flexible and able to show initiative. Even more so, we're looking for individuals who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children who have special needs.
At Variety we value your time, enthusiasm and passion. Our volunteers will enjoy meeting and working with like-minded people who are committed to our cause. Volunteering offers an opportunity to discover and enhance your strengths and talents while increasing your social and professional network. No matter how you become involved with Variety, you can be sure that you will be making a difference in the lives of others as well as your own.
People volunteer for many reasons and many feel rewarded by the good feeling they get from helping kids. While that reward is usually enough, we also believe in showing our volunteers appreciation by providing references and confirmation letters and hosting volunteer appreciation events. We want to say thank you so there is a recognition program based on number of hours and years of service.
