Volunteering at Night Lights

  • Helping with set-up and break-down of supplies, equipment, and check-in table
  • Greeting families
  • Cleaning up after the event

  • Completing an update of your experience with the child at the end of the night.
  • Providing childcare for children ages 4 weeks to 12 years old that have a variety of needs and abilities

More About Being a Night Lights Volunteer

  • You must be over the age of 18
  • Members of the community that come from all professions, backgrounds and skill-levels
  • Understand that this role does NOT involve providing nursing care or therapy of any kind
  • Children who attend Night Lights love hanging out with their “buddy.” Your role as a “buddy” impacts not only the child, but the whole family. By committing to a handful of hours one Friday each month, you give parents a break and the chance to refresh. You provide a positive impact by:
    • Giving a parent or caregiver a much-deserved break.
    • Becoming part of the Night Lights family which is filled with a diverse group who give selflessly with all of their hearts.


The requirements to volunteer are to have a passion for making the world a better place for children, training and passing a background and reference check. To maintain consistency for the children and families, we do ask that you commit to volunteering for approximately 5 hours (the entire length of set-up, childcare, and tear down) at least every other month.
