Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for a way to help others? Want to share your life skills with the young? The Padua Center needs you!

The Padua Center needs volunteers to help with the after school homework helper program. The program runs from 3:00-5:00 PM Monday-Thursday when there is school. A small group of children come to the Center for homework assistance, enrichment activities and to join in many education opportunities scheduled throughout the year.

During the summer months tutoring is provided from 9:00-10:00 AM – before the summer camps. Volunteers are welcomed to help tutor or to join our Summer Camps as a Camp Counselor. Summer Camps run from June 5- through July 28, 2017. Come for a week, or set aside one day a week!

Receptionist and administrative assistance is greatly needed at the Padua Center. Volunteers can be schedule for one or more morning or afternoon a week.

Please call Sister Virginia to set up a time to come to the Padua Center and to see where you can make a difference in the life of a child!
