Family Service Opportunities

(The Ultimate List of Volunteer Opportunities for the Whole Family)

Service Opportunities for Families

We recently posted 25 ideas for doing service with your family (even your toddlers). With your help, we have now put together a specific list of organizations that allow families to volunteer together. If you think we’ve missed one, feel free to comment or contact us about any volunteer opportunities for the whole family that you know of. (Updated October 2018)

Disclaimer: We have included these organizations in good faith, but cannot verify the validity of each organization. Always use caution and do your research before volunteering with an organization.
