NAC's corps of 300 volunteers is a crucial part of our success. As a volunteer, you can make a difference to a child, gain experience, meet other motivated professionals, and work with one of the nation’s most-highly-respected social services agency. Volunteers mentor children, make the NAC Olympics and December holiday party possible, chaperone trips to the beach, and so much more.
