Events and Information Coordinators: If you have some spare time each month and have good communication and organizational skills, we would love to hear from you.
Administration: Is administration your strong point? Do you have a computer and know how to use Word and/or Excel, or do you have HTML skills and can help with our website updates?
Volunteer: We need to train more volunteers to help us with our weekend program. If you are an Artist, Musician, or an Actor and have a heart for children, call us to participate in one of our programs. We also need volunteers to recruit churches to accept Karina as part of their own ministry.
