Are you interested in volunteering?

  • We are recruiting for all volunteer areas in Learning Peace:

    • Subject teachers for these areas - Connecting with Nature, Conflict Resolution, Media Literacy, Mindful Movement

    • Group Guides shepherd small groups of children to activities and classes

    • Field trip leaders organize groups for the bus ride to Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge and provide supervision during the trip

    • Island time supervisors help children take a break from structured activities with quiet time, stories, and rest

    • General Volunteers assist with registration, giving directions, answering questions, helping with arts and crafts, lunches and snacks, and cleaning and maintaining our spaces at the Hispanic Cultural Center

  • Any time you can offer or skills you can share are greatly needed, even if it is just a few hours or some of the days during the camp time! Contact our Coordinator (information below) to share your interests and ideas.

  • Our Volunteer Orientations will be held in spring and summer 2019. There will be more than one opportunity to attend a training. You do not need to volunteer for all days of Learning Peace. Volunteers are welcome for any days and times that you are available. High school age youth are encouraged to volunteer, and will work alongside adults at Learning Peace. We also have informal volunteer gatherings, dinners and get-togethers.

“I can be a buddy, not a bully.”

“Discrimination hurts.”

“I’m going to try and make new friends and help others.”

“I can listen better and understand more."
