Areas of Interest and Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Please read the volunteer descriptions. Many of the opportunities are for all ages and abilities, and we have tried to note when there might be heavy lifting, or a minimum age requirement for some volunteer jobs. If you have any questions, email or call 505-243-6626.

Mudd Volleyball

Our signature fundraiser, the annual Mudd Volleyball tournament, will take place in June 2016.

It’s never too early to plan ahead. We count on hundreds of volunteers that day to make the event a success, and because it’s our largest fundraiser, volunteers are a critical part of helping to make a difference for the children we serve. To volunteer at Mudd Volleyball, you must be 16 or older, and there can be quite a bit of standing, lifting, and physical activity in the sun all day.

We need volunteers to referee, to be runners, and to help man our information tents. Training is provided, and you don’t have to know the rules of volleyball to help out.

Festival of Trees

We’d love your help making this winter wonderland a special treat for 20,000+ visitors. If you are under the age of 14, this is an all-ages volunteer opportunity, although we ask that you sign up with a parent or adult. Click here to apply to volunteer as a family.

The winter holidays may be a long way off … but we need hundreds of volunteers to make our Festival of Trees magical

Interested in learning more about volunteering at Festival of Trees

From helping out at Santa’s North Pole (photo area) and the Elves’ Workshop to handing out programs and informing visitors about the Festival and the Foundation, we’ll need lots of help.
We’re asking for volunteers that can work a 3-hour shift on one or more of the festival. All ages and abilities are welcome. If you are under the age of 14, please sign up with a parent or an adult. Please let us know if you are interested and available during the weekend, and we’ll be in touch to confirm your schedule availability. We will be offering a volunteer training for those who can attend in mid-November.

Camp Adventure

Every June, the Foundation’s Camp Adventure provides a unique program for 50+ children who learn over twenty adaptive sports and have the opportunity to compete with their peers. If you have an interest in a career in physical therapy, a sports background, or if you’re looking for a way to give back and be more involved, this might be the perfect volunteer program for you.

To volunteer to work directly with the kids, there is a separate volunteer application, a required background check, and a mandatory orientation. You must be 14 or older, and because of the training involved, we ask for volunteers that can commit to at least 2 full days during the two-week camp.

Every spring, the application process for volunteering at Beyond Limits opens. There is a separate application that you can complete online. Please sign up below if you would like to be on our list for next year.

Please note that there is a separate application process, including a background check and mandatory training, and I will apply next spring for the program.

One-Time Projects / Office Help

Throughout the year, special, one-time projects come up. If you are willing to help, please consider signing up, and we’ll send you opportunities throughout the year. These can range from volunteering at small events that are organized to benefit the families we serve to short-term projects around the office.
