Get Involved
There are a variety of opportunities to get involved. We do our best to find what works best for your time and talent. Here are some volunteer opportunities throughout the week:

Kitchen: Planning, prepping, cooking, and serving. Don’t worry If you do or don’t know how to cook, there is a place for you! 

Classroom: Facilitating the daily activities for the students. This is more of a direct opportunity to work with the students.

Enrichment: If you have a special gift or talent that you would want to share with the students, we are always looking for exciting new opportunities!

Safety: While the students are on the facility, we ensure that the environment operates as safe as possible. This team assists with student arrival and dismissal.

Administrative: Throughout the week there is plenty to plan and prepare. If you love making copies, organizing, making phone calls, there is always an opportunity to help!

"I was told about The Bradenton Dream Center and felt like that was where the Lord was leading me. I was totally unprepared for the things that I’ve experienced.  I didn’t expect to be welcomed so warmly. I didn’t expect to fall in love with these kids so quickly and that a simple thing like jump rope or four square or helping with homework could mean so much to a child. Serving there has become a highlight of my week!"

"I have always loved working with children. The after-school program is so special and the staff and volunteers have become family! I look forward each week to seeing those smiling faces step off the bus and let’s not forget their big hugs! It is an honor to be able to pour the love of Jesus into each child and to be a part of their lives!"

"Getting to serve in the after school program, I learned greatly about unconditional love. Working with the students everyday, learning about them and learning how to best work with each individual kid, showed me how far showing a child unconditional love can go. Having the opportunity to work with the students everyday was such a special honor as I got to see them transform right in front of me."

"Estoy muy agradecida por todo el cariño, respeto y cuidado que le dan a mi nieta Alannah en el Programa Después de la Escuela del Bradenton Dream Center. El Programa ha sido una bendición para mi nieta y nuestra familia. El Dream Center  le ha ofrecido a Alannah experiencias, paseos y actividades que nunca hubiera experimentado. Los voluntarios y la administración se preocupan y sirven a los estudiantes y las familias con mucho amor y respeto."
