Volunteers have been essential to our mission since the very beginning. In our 2020-2021 season, volunteers gave 4,845 hours to CC4C - that's the equivalent of more than 2 full-time employees!


Our volunteers are an integral part of our team, and we love seeing their hearts and smiles grow as they serve and share their gifts with CC4C children and families.

There are lots of ways to get involved, including:

  • Serving on a child's Dream Team

  • Helping with special events

  • Taking on a committee leadership role

  • Special project-based work in your area of skill/interest

  • And more! Check out Volunteer Opportunities above for a list of current needs. We're also open to ideas - if you can dream it, we'd love to find a way for you to do it!

Please contact Monina Mercado, our Director of Operations and Volunteers, to learn how you can get involved or submit the application form at the top of this page and we'll be in touch!

First of all, I am humbled and grateful everyday for the Champion High School program. The high school teams program is one where the 12 active CC4C children are matched with their local high school “dream team.” They then become an honorary teammate, where the children are provided a sense comradery and community. The support from student athletes brings the CC4C children joy, instills confidence, and a provides inspiration as they navigate their daily struggles. In turn, the program provides a platform in which students become role models, learn compassion and empathy, and serve a purpose higher than themselves. In summary, the program not only provides support to children who need and deserve it, but it also shapes our local high school students into servant leaders of the future.
