Volunteering at Tennyson Center

Volunteers are one of our most valuable assets. An average of 1,000 volunteers donate their time each year in a variety of ways. Opportunities include mentoring, spending time on a regular basis with a cottage or classroom, assisting staff with outings and events for the kids, helping out at one of our many events throughout the year, and home improvements for our residential cottages, just to name a few.

We can never have enough volunteers and opportunities are always available for qualified individuals or groups who would like to donate their time.

To learn more about volunteering or to become a volunteer, fill out this form. To volunteer directly with the children, you will be required to attend a Volunteer Training. After you complete the application, our Manager of Volunteer Services will follow up with you. 

Leadership, service and youth organizations

Many service organizations volunteer at Tennyson Center. Favorite activities among these groups have included “Reading Buddies”, sporting and recreational activities, game nights, cooking nights, bowling leagues, holiday outings and so much more.  By offering to spend time with the children, you’re giving something of immeasurable value to the children and to our mission. To the kids, you become a mentor, a role model, even a teacher.  But, more importantly, you become a friend. To learn more about group opportunities, contact our Manager of Volunteer Services.
