Volunteer at Cottage

There aren't one or two ways to volunteer at Cottage, the possibilities are limitless!  Our volunteers have varying interests, talents, and time available.  Our goal is to match each volunteer with a school/student support that meets the needs of our students and recognizes the unique qualities of the volunteer - a win, win combination!

Below are examples of volunteerism at Cottage over the past year, but the list is just a start.  We want your special passion to be shared with our students...we look forward to our partnership.
