The success of our charitable work and community events throughout the year is made possible with the support of several hundred community volunteers who generously share their time, energy, and expertise with the Center.
Partnering with volunteers is just one more way in which the Center helps bridge cultural differences and strengthens the spirit of collaboration in our West Michigan community.
Do I need to be fluently bilingual to volunteer at the Center?
No. Bilingual skills help, but are not required for the majority of volunteer opportunities available at the Center.
What volunteer opportunities are available?
The Hispanic Center utilizes volunteers of all ages in various capacities. We have an ongoing need for a wide range of volunteer support, including:
- Clerical support
- Youth mentors
- Youth tutors
- Adult GED tutors
What do I need to do to sign up to volunteer?
Volunteers are asked to fill out an application. Due to the vulnerable nature of clients that we serve, we conduct criminal background checks on all volunteers prior to their participation with our events and programs. Volunteers are then asked to participate in a brief orientation before placement.
