Volunteer

Be part of bridging the gap from surviving to thriving by volunteering at Americana World Community Center! Volunteers are crucial to helping our refugee, immigrant, and underserved neighbors overcome challenges. Opportunities to volunteer range from helping at one-time events to assisting children with homework. Volunteering at Americana is a great way to give back to our community and to form meaningful relationships with program participants. Learn more about how you can get involved.

To begin volunteering at Americana Community Center…

1) Complete  a volunteer application

You can do this online here: Volunteer Application. If you would like a paper application, please come by the Center and request one from the front office.

2) Attend an orientation

Orientations are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:00 -7:00pm at Americana Community Center.

3) Read the volunteer manual

Be sure to read the Volunteer Manual and return the last page signed to the Volunteer Coordinator.

4) Complete a background check or consent form

If 18 or older and volunteering 10+ hours, please complete a background check before you begin volunteering. If you’ve had one done in the past 12 months, you can provide a copy of the results or a letter from the organization.

We strongly suggest a $10 donation to cover the cost of your background check, if you are able.

Volunteers under age 18 should have a parent/guardian sign the Youth Volunteer Consent Form and return it to the Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteers under age 16 will need to volunteer with an adult supervisor.
