Program Volunteer Opportunities
We offer a wide variety of programs at locations both on and off base. Our programming includes Operation Little Learners Preschool, Operation Hero (after school), Hospital Child Watch, School of Infantry (SOI) Recreation Center, School of Infantry Concrete Beach BBQ’s, and Summer Camps. Age requirements range from 15 years to 21 years of age depending on the program and volunteer position. Between all our programs, we have positions available every day of the week from 0800 to 1800.
We require criminal background checks for all volunteers who interact on a regular basis with children, and $20 donation to the program of your choice to off-set the background check cost. This background check done in house and may take up to one month. Volunteering at the Navy Hospital requires an updated shot record as well as clearance from Occupational Health at the hospital, in addition to an ASYMCA background check and donation. The hospital screening is done at no cost to the volunteer.
Preschool, Child Watch, and Operation Hero volunteers are expected to commit to a minimum of 3 hours (one day) a week, but are encouraged to volunteer twice a week. Additional volunteers may be needed for preschool party weeks such as Easter, Graduation, and Holiday.
