The Family Place continues to rely on the help of volunteers. The Family Place offers a variety of fulfilling volunteer opportunities throughout daytime program hours from 9:00-5:00 Monday through Friday and evening during Plaza Comunitaria (Spanish Literacy program) 7-9 pm Monday to Wednesday.

- providing clerical & reception support
- assist our program as a social media & development intern
- assisting in the ESL classes & weekly conversation program
