Ways to Volunteer
Toy Making Class and Early Childhood Development Class. Our toy making class is one the most unique things about the AVANCE curriculum. We use ordinary household items and turn them into stimulating educational toys for the children. You will work with us to prepare necessary materials for these classes. This are wonderful opportunities for Corporate Volunteer Partners, these are enjoyable and engaging, fostering a sense of ownership in your community. In addition to making an impact, corporate volunteer projects can be valuable team-building exercises that increase brand awareness. From on or off-site volunteer projects to employee giving, there are countless ways for your organization or business to make futures so bright for more families in our community.
Toy Competition. This is an open house style event where our supporters and friends volunteer to judge the 25 hand-made toys finalist from among 700 unique didactical toy made by AVANCE parents using all the tools and resources learned in the AVANCE Educational Toy making class. The top 5 places will receive a scholarship for a class on a community college paid by AVANCE.
