Horizons for Homeless Children is seeking volunteers to play with children living in family homeless shelters in the Northeast region of Massachusetts, including shelters in Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, Amesbury, Gloucester, Salem, Peabody, Lynn, Revere, and Malden. There are also opportunities across the state.
A commitment of 2 hours per week for 6 months is required. Some daytime hours are available but shifts are primarily evening hours, Monday through Thursday. Trainings are held on an ongoing basis across the state if you cannot make this particular training!
Volunteers must fill out an application and attend a 3-hour Playspace Activity Leader Training in order to volunteer with Horizons for Homeless Children. We also run background and complete reference checks.
Horizons hosts PAL Trainings across the state, throughout the year. The next training in the Northeast Region will be on Thursday, June 15th from 6:00-9:00 pm at the Peabody Institute Library West Branch in Peabody, MA. If you cannot make this particular training, we will have other training opportunities on Saturday, June 17th from 9:30 am-12:30 pm in Roxbury, MA and Wednesday, July 19th from 6:00-9:00 pm in Worcester, MA that could be convenient for Northeast MA Volunteers!
