Did you know that many of the programs and events offered by the SSCA are run entirely or in part by volunteers? We are pleased to offer a variety of volunteer opportunities with a range of time commitments. Examples of roles with shorter time commitments include helping serve food at our annual BBQ or helping direct traffic at the Community Clean Up. More involved volunteer roles include joining a steering committee on a project like the Pump Track Pilot or Playground Rebuild. If you want to get really involved, consider a role on the Preschool Advisory Committee or our Board of Directors. Get involved with your community and volunteer today!
