Volunteering

Samaritan Center has a vibrant volunteer program integral to the operation of our campus. Volunteers give of their hearts and skills by doing everything from tutoring to providing evening activities to preparing meals to staffing the Great Chefs Adventure!
 
Perhaps the most popular and gratifying volunteer effort (not to mention its positive impact) is our tutoring program. The volunteer tutors work under the direction of our teacher, Miss Barbara, to help in specific "problem” areas such as reading comprehension and mathematics. Thanks to consistent one-on-one work, our boys have progressed academically to a level and at a rate unprecedented here at Samaritan Center.
 
We have a group of volunteers who make dinner for the boys from time to time. Simply make dinner in your home and deliver it directly to our residences just in time for the boys to dig in!

Other volunteers help with evening activities, work to make special events a success . . . some even help with gardening or light repair. Click here to contact us online, or call us at 772-287-4123 to learn more. 
Following are examples as to how volunteers help the Samaritan Center carry out its mission every day.  But volunteer opportunities are limited only by our imaginations!  We'd love to talk to you to explore ways that you can use your unique skills, creativity, education and experience to enlighten and inspire our students.  We promise:  There is nothing more rewarding than helping to reconcile families and build men....one boy at a time!
