Volunteering

Volunteers Welcome!

ImageThere are many opportunities for volunteers to be involved at the Center. Our volunteers come from a cross section of our community. They are housewives, college students, business people, retired persons, teachers or part time workers.

The wonderful thing about volunteering is that it brings so much satisfaction and camaraderie…to you and to those you help. If you’d like to volunteer, or have ideas for programs you could lead, we’d love to hear from you. If you aren’t sure how you can help, call our Director Marie Marcotte at 294-3331 Ext.400 mmarcotte@northkingstown.org. or Assistant Director Melanie Gillis at 294-3331 Ext. 402 mgillis@northkingstown.org and they can fill you in.
