Volunteer Opportunities

We strongly believe in the valuable role that volunteers play in transforming the lives of our community members. As little as 2 – 10 hours per month is all it takes to have a positive impact on an individual’s life.

NICA provides volunteer service opportunities for groups, families, and people of nearly every age. We have flexible schedules available weekdays on Tuesday through Friday and Saturday morning. Other times are by appointment. These opportunities are suitable for a church, Sunday school class, business, work team, civic group, or other organization from the community. On-the-job training is also provided. These opportunities include:
