The first step to becoming a volunteer at Imagine is to attend an Imagine Tour. Once you’ve learned what Imagine offers, you can choose a volunteer opportunity that works for you and your schedule – from setting-up rooms to providing your expertise as a board member, task force or committee member. Teens and adults provide hospitality and serve as ambassadors, spreading the word about Imagine online or in person.

Program Volunteers assist with all of the details involved with running our peer support group programs on our Nights and Afternoons of Support. This can range from setting up or cleaning up to greeting participants and providing hospitality. It includes helping prepare special projects, organizing the arts and crafts and program rooms, to cleaning and repairing stuffed animals and decorating for special events.
In order for Imagine to provide services and support to any child or family in need we need as many people as possible to know about us. We do this primarily through our tours. Ambassadors are people who commit to having a minimum of 10 people attend an Imagine a World Tour within a three-month period. Ambassador trainings are held quarterly at Imagine.
Imagineers are people we can call on to assist us in the office with mailings, making copies or assembling binders, to staffing tables at events and conferences, or distributing fliers and brochures at funeral homes, schools, houses of worship or downtown businesses. Imagineers typically are people willing to roll up their sleeves and pitch in where help is needed. They help with Wish List collection, assist at events, serve on committees, make phone calls, and basically say “yes” when we call and need help with any of the myriad projects and tasks that make up running Imagine.
