Do you want to make a real difference in your community? Volunteer! There are many ways to get involved.
The Brooklyn Center is committed to providing the highest quality service to our community and constituents. While The Center respects the right to privacy of all citizens, we also have a responsibility to make every attempt to provide the safest space possible for our youth, families, children, seniors, disabled and other more vulnerable members of our community. In light of this duty, regular volunteers may be required to participate in fingerprint checks, in addition to a brief review of publicly available criminal databases. Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us create a safe and comfortable space for all.
Types of support we often need:
Do you love to do data entry? Or maybe mailings are more your forte? If you like administrative work we certainly have a place for you! Volunteers are needed to assist and support staff members in a variety of office duties such as data entry, copy editing, phone calls, copying, letter writing, mailing preparation, word processing and filing.
Front Desk Services
The front desk team is the first point of contact for many visitors, callers, clients and community members. Responsibilities of the front desk team include welcoming/greeting all visitors, clients and callers, and providing information, resources and referrals as requested or required. If you are a people-person and are able to commit to a set, weekly schedule (set monthly schedule for weekend shifts), then this is the job for you!
You can support us in our research, database management, reporting or event planning.
The Center often holds special community and fundraising events that require additional volunteer assistance.
