More About Being a Night Lights Volunteer

  • Members of the community that come from all professions, backgrounds and skill-levels
  • Volunteer at the sites with children who have special needs or with the siblings as a buddy
  • This role does NOT involve providing nursing care or therapy of any kind
  • Volunteer opportunities include being a buddy to a child with special needs or typically developing siblings, fundraising, blogging, social media, and more
  • 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:

  • have a passion for making the world a better place for children
  • pass a nationwide background and reference check (for volunteers 18 and older)
  • be 18 or older (14 years old if volunteering with a parent)

If you are interested in volunteering with Night Lights, please select the site closest to you, and complete the interest form. A member of the leadership team will reach out to you. For more information about volunteering, email us at info@nightlightskids.org.
