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 Padua Center runs six weeks of free summer camp. Each day the children have the opportunity for academic work, as well as many fun activities, trips and events.  If you can volunteer during the summer, please call the Center.

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!
