Ongoing Opportunities

Monday Night Childcare Helpers

While our residents attend job training classes we need volunteers to watch their children. We need a minimum of 8 adults to properly staff for the children’s safety. The remaining volunteers can be 16 and older. This is a great service opportunity for your family, friends, school, club, church, or business. Sign Up

Thursday Night Childcare Helpers

While our residents attend meetings, their children need to be kept busy and our childcare helpers do just that. On the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursday of each month, 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm. Volunteers need to be 18 years old, however they can bring volunteers 16 years and older to help. Sign Up

Weekday Childcare Helpers

We need volunteers to help watch children as parents fill out paperwork to enter our program. Sign Up

Mentor Our Teens

We are looking for mentors that are at least 21 years old and reside in North County. These volunteers will be mentoring youth of our resident families from the ages of 13-18. We are asking for a one year commitment with a minimum of 4 hours per month. Solutions for Change will provide initial and ongoing training to the mentors. Please contact Georganna at 760-941-6545 x326 or gketchum@solutionsforchange.org
