Lend a helping hand as a volunteer in Charleston!

WINGS is happy and honored to welcome a variety of individual volunteers to support our Charleston 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
  • Play during Freeplay | Lead group activities or engage with kids who might be more interested in one-on-one games
  • Become a WINGS Companion | Mentor 1-3 kids on a consistent basis by helping to reinforce social emotional lessons and act as a positive role model
SUPPORT STAFF
  •  Assist during daily community-wide dinner
  • Provide Spanish translation
  • Help with special / family events

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 required beyond a big, open heart to share with our amazing kids!

We want you! But first…

  • We are currently only accepting volunteers in our Charleston location 
  • Volunteer applications are accepted October 1 – April 1 and the last day to volunteer is April 30th

I'm an individual interested in volunteering:

  • (If interested in being an office volunteer.)
  • What days of the week are you available and how frequently are you nterested in volunteering? We typically need volunteers in the program Monday through Friday from 3:00-6:00 PM. Unfortunately, we do not offer weekend or summer volunteer opportunities.
  • I give my permission for photos or videos of me to be used for publicity specific to the organization's purposes without remuneration or compensation.
