Volunteer Application

  • We need your help. Foreverfamily depends on volunteers. They power everything we do, from preparing meals for our afterschool programs to working one-on-one with our youth. At any given time, we have nearly 60 volunteers, drawn mainly from local colleges, working anywhere from five to 20 hours a week.

    But more than just give, we know our volunteers take away much from their time with Foreverfamily. We make sure they know we value their input; at the end of each event, we make certain all our volunteers have a chance to debrief and tell us what worked and what didn’t. We make a point of acknowledging their service at every opportunity. Above all, we provide training and enrichment programs for our volunteers to make sure they have as much of an opportunity to grow as our children.

    Feel free to contact Foreverfamily at volunteer@foreverfam.org or call or text us at 404-223-1200 if you have any questions or need help completing this form.

    Please complete the following questions. Applications are processed once a week. Once we have processed your information, we will contact you with the remaining steps to volunteer. Thanks for helping us succeed in our mission of surrounding children with the love of family!

  • 1. Be on time to each event. 2. Call (with ample notice) if you cannot attend or will be late. 3. Be responsible for your own transportation to and from Foreverfamily programs. 4.
