Lend a helping hand as a volunteer!

WINGS is happy and honored to welcome a variety of individual volunteers to support our programs: high school students, retirees, local business people, and all other members of the community looking to get involved with a local organization.

Volunteering at WINGS

We welcome program volunteers to help in the following areas:

Support kids
  • Assist with Academic Center | Provide homework help, play STEM-related games, or support kids that need more individualized attention
  • Help during Choice Time | Be an extra set of hands during specialized elective activities such as cooking, dance, crafts, music and more*
    *Not available in Charleston
  • Become a WINGS Companion | Mentor a child on a consistent basis by helping to reinforce social emotional lessons and act as a positive role model
    *We ask that our WINGS Companions commit to coming once a week for at least 8 weeks

support at events

Add your name to a list to be called upon to volunteer at various special events throughout the year to assist with tasks such as:

  • Set up and break down
  • Serving dinner
  • Check-in table support
  • Activity Assistant
  • Clean up

Volunteers support our program Monday through Friday between 3:00-6:00 PM. You can sign-up to volunteer at a frequency that works for you – one time, once a week, or once a month. No experience or special skills are required beyond a big, open heart to share with our amazing kids!

*Please note some programs only have opportunities on certain days of the week. More detailed information will be provided based on the region you are interested in.
