Oportunidades para voluntarios

Although they’re often behind the scenes, our dedicated volunteers make it possible to deliver life-changing services to children and families throughout Central Texas. Volunteering with Any Baby Can is undoubtedly a rewarding, meaningful experience for groups, families, teams, and anyone who chooses us to give their time and talents.

While volunteer opportunities have changed over the last few years, one thing remains the same: Our volunteers are passionate about children’s health and development, want to empower parents, and always bring a great attitude to any task.

Experiences that Make an Impact

Volunteers impact every corner of our organization. We work with our service-delivery staff to identify and match volunteers with the right program or team. In many cases, volunteers help create experiences for our families, while not directly engaging with clients.

For example, we have remote volunteer experiences such as making cards, crafts, games, and blankets that staff give to families, as well as opportunities such as virtual story time and tutoring. Volunteer help organize gifts during the holidays, cheer on parents graduating from our programs, as well as with several other in-person events we host throughout the year. Additionally, some volunteers support our staff with a variety of office-related tasks including outreach, video editing and data organization. As a result, we're able to reach more clients and deliver services more effectively.

No matter how people choose to give back, our Coordinador voluntario and agency staff make sure that everything runs smoothly!

How do you serve?

I volunteered as a part of my company’s team. We took on several of the craft projects ranging from filling sensory balloons with different materials designed to help in developing the sense of touch, creating colorful popsicle stick puzzles, and sewing animal hand puppets.

What did you take away?

Any Baby Can was able to offer us several options that allowed us to work together as a team. Team members enjoyed these projects so much that they took materials home with them and recruited family members to work on more projects for Any Baby Can!

How do you serve?

I've volunteered with Any Baby Can by taking part in a virtual story time, designing coloring/activity pages, and bowling for pumpkins project for children to do at home. In addition, I've helped with client outreach and also by contacting community organizations to reach more potential clients.

What did you take away?

These projects were meaningful because I got to create things to keep the children engaged through the pandemic. Any Baby Can unquestionably makes a difference and works with other organizations or qualified people to support families in the best way possible.
