We welcome you
What to join a dynamic, fun-loving group of volunteers? Do you have a smile to share? Want to help provide needed support for our community? Then please consider sharing your time, energy, skills, and smile to make a difference at Amberwell Atchison.
Volunteering at Amberwell Atchison has been a community tradition since 1957. Amberwell Atchison offers services for adult volunteers as well as opportunities for students ages fourteen to eighteen years old in the Junior Volunteer Program. Both programs contribute more than 115,000 hours of service yearly to the Sunflower Gift Shop, the Twice is Nice Thrift Shop, Mail Delivery, Surgery Hospitality, Information Desk, Arts and Crafts, and other fundraising activities.
All programs require an application, an interview, a tuberculosis skin test, and completion of orientation. Volunteer opportunities involve varying levels of skill, challenge, and involvement. Hours and days are flexible and the training provided. Most positions require a commitment of two to four hours per week.
