Anyone, middle school age and up can volunteer for Safety Town. Volunteers assist the hired staff. There is a mandatory orientation for volunteers each year at the end of June. Youth and adult volunteers are needed to serve as Leader Assistants, responsible for helping staff leaders monitor and supervise an assigned group of 8 to 10 children. Adult volunteers not only serve as Leader Assistants, but can also serve as a presenter (teach a topic). Presenters would be asked to teach one day per week for any or all of the four Safety Town sessions.
Volunteer hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., Monday through Friday. All Safety Town volunteers receive a Safety Town T-shirt and recognition at the weekly Completion Ceremony. For the purposes of scheduling and consistency, all selected volunteers are required to commit to at least 1 entire week of the program. Space is limited to only 50 volunteer slots.
