Thank you for volunteering!

Our wonderful volunteers are one of the most important community resources we have for helping us serve children birth to 5 and their families.

Volunteering at the Partnership is a great way to be engaged in early childhood issues, to spend time with young children and families, to support important work being done in the Durham community, and to have fun!

We have ongoing volunteer opportunities as well as one-time events and other needs, particularly during the holiday season and in the spring. Please contact Elaine Zukerman at elaine@dpfc.net if you’d like to be added to our volunteer email list to receive information about volunteer needs. Volunteer opportunities will also be posted on this page as they become available.

A background check may be required for some volunteer opportunities.
