There are so many opportunities for you to take part in a rising community effort. You don’t feel called to work with kids? THAT’S OK!!! Everyone can be a part of what’s goin’ on at the Rain Teen Center!
- Student Volunteers needed: Not in middle or high school but still want to come hang out with us? We always want to have a variety of ages in our center to make sure there are plenty of connections between our students! Our student volunteers are the greatest, because not only are they old enough to chaperone, but they are still “cool” enough to connect with the kids! Our student volunteers are supervised by our adult staff and are required to have a letter of recommendation to participate.
- Adult Volunteers needed: If you feel a calling to work with youth (let’s face it… those are few in number) and would like to be a part of what God is doing at TRTC, we would love to have you be a part. Adult volunteers perform a variety of duties that include chaperoning, security, concessions, sound, audio, and video, clean up and follow up. All of our adult volunteers must submit to and pass a background check.
- In kind sponsorships and donation of goods: The old saying “it takes a VILLAGE” is so true even when running a teen center! There are so many material things that are needed that if donated take a tremendous load off the centers monthly expenses. What are those items? We’re glad you asked!!! Toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, plastic cups, disposable plates, napkins, gatorade mix, bagged ice, can coke products, bottled water, and the list could go on and on! all donations are tax deductible (you will be given a deduction of the fair market value at the time of donation) Also, if you have some sort of special skill or service that you perform, we accept in kind sponsorships!
- Monthly partnerships: Yes, here comes the “M” word! WE NEED YOUR MONEY! The Rain Teen Center is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. We run our teen center solely on donations and God has blessed us abundantly! But our constant aim is to have attractive events for youth (which can be a hard thing in today’s society) and it causes us to step up our game constantly. In addition to monthly operating expenses (rent, electric, water, etc) we need funds to put on free events for our young people. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please go to the donate tab at the top of this screen.
