Volunteer Opportunities

There are ALWAYS volunteer opportunities at Family Support & Treatment Center. We have groups project and individual projects. These opportunities can be either one time projects on-going. Each volunteer experience will make a difference in a child’s life. 

Here are some examples of how you can help:

  • Play with children (infant to 11 years) in our Crisis Nursery.
  • Help with yard work and other maintenance in the Crisis Nursery.
  • Use our list below and conduct a ‘giving drive’ for items.
  • Help us with events such as our Family Fun Day or other holiday events.
  • Organize a fundraiser with your friends, co-workers or classmates.
  • Share specific skills, talents and experience (office skills, IT, event planning, arts, graphic design, handyman, construction, electrical, plumbing, or landscaping…)

Crisis Nursery Information

Most of our on-going volunteer opportunities are in our Crisis Respite Nursery working with young children ages 0-11.

To become a Nursery Volunteer you must be over 16 years old, attend a 60-90 minute New Volunteer Orientation and complete a Background Check.

To complete this Background Check you will need a copy of your driver’s license or Utah State I.D. card and you must be fingerprinted. This process is completed at orientation and requires a fee of $37 which will be reimbursed after 10 hours of volunteer service.

Service Learning

If you are looking to volunteer with us to fulfill a Service Learning credit for school please plan ahead and call us early in the term.

We have a lot of opportunities for you to help us, but we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get all your hours and learning objectives met by your deadline if the timeline is too short.

Internships

There are meaningful internship opportunities at the Family Support & Treatment Center for undergraduate or graduate students in various disciplines.

Court Ordered Service

We have limited opportunities for Court-ordered community service. Primarily limited to opportunities with maintenance and yard work.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, the Family Support & Treatment Center reserves the right to deny any application for volunteering for any reason.
