Volunteers

The volunteers who work with young people are the backbone of our programs for Children and Youth in the yearly meeting.

In order to maintain an appropriate ratio of adults to children, we are always seeking volunteers who are interested in supporting the kids’ spiritual development, their work and their play.  Volunteers are 100% guaranteed to laugh often, attempt to answer the very most important questions regularly, and find yourself open to play and joy in their unfiltered forms.

Volunteers for children’s programs are:

  • Friends who love kids.
  • Parents supporting their children.
  • High School or College students looking to expand their experience and resume.
  • Adults who feel they have something to gain by being in the presence of Children’s joyful spirit.

Safety is a top concern for Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.  In order to volunteer with youth, you will be asked to complete some simple forms and consent to a background check.

We encourage anyone with interest or further questions to contact the Youth Engagement Coordinator and discover the upcoming opportunities.
