WE DEPEND ON YOUR SUPPORT!
Teen Parent Connection staff and participants depend on our volunteers to successfully implement service delivery, and could not provide the amount of support to our families without their dedication, time, and leadership.
Due to current social distancing guidelines, in-person volunteer opportunities are temporarily limited..
CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:
Board of Directors Member or Community Advisor Position
Support the mission of Teen Parent Connection through board service. The board is responsible for providing governance, financial oversight, strategic planning, and building connections that help advance the mission. Work collaboratively with 12-18 other board members to ensure and protect the public interest of the organization. Board meetings are held every other month. Committees meet in the month between board meetings. Share your expertise, build your experience, and meet others who are interested in making a difference for the children in our community.
Come join a vibrant group and help plan an event for a good cause. This opportunity allows you to meet others in the DuPage County community and have some fun! Joining an event committee is a great way to learn about Teen Parent Connection’s mission and work. We have two major events each year. Share your talent and help us with soliciting auction items, sponsorships, planning, decorating, public relations and event promotion.
Parents’ Pantry Drive
Teen Parent Connection’s Parents’ Pantry relies on donations from volunteers and community groups. Past pantry drives have been led by hospitals, corporate offices, women’s associations, scout troops, and local churches. As a crew leader of a pantry drive, you organize the location, duration of your particular drive, and solicit items such as diapers, wipes and formula. The crew leader also facilitates the transportation of the items and organizes the donations at the Teen Parent Connection offices.
Prevention Program – Community Advisory Group
Teen Parent Connection is looking for volunteers for its Prevention Program’s Community Advisory Group (CAG). CAG members include prevention program staff, peer educators, parents of adolescents, teachers, community health educators, concerned citizens, and adolescents. CAG members share information and guide one another in order to achieve our goals of promoting adolescent health and preventing teen pregnancy, STD’s/HIV/AIDS.
