Due to Governor Whitmer’s Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order, and for the safety of our staff and volunteers, Family Futures will not be utilizing volunteers at the moment. Since Volunteers are so important to Family Futures, and our community, we will still be processing applications during this time. Please feel free to apply now and we will be in touch soon about what volunteer opportunities we have when we get back!
Volunteers are crucial in our work. Their support is essential in protecting children, supporting families, and strengthening our community. It would not be possible to serve the same number of families without the time and energy our volunteers give so generously.
We love our volunteers and appreciate their work so much! If you’d like to join us, we have a great office culture where you’ll be welcomed as a valued member of the team. If you have little ones, we’ve got an awesome playroom, so they can come too!
If you’re interested in individual assignments or group projects for your family and friends, please fill out the volunteer form and we’ll follow up with you. Whether you’re looking for short term, occasional, or regular volunteer opportunities, we’re flexible about getting you involved with something that works for you!
Family Futures cares about our volunteer’s strengths and interests. Feel free to email or call us with information about yourself, and we will find a position that is right for you. We have opportunities virtually or in-office. Volunteers are free to set their own schedule during normal business hours (Monday-Thursday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Friday, 8:30 am – 3 pm).
(Preferred 1 to 6 hours per week): Mailings are the backbone of Connections, our largest program, and every week we need help prepping developmental surveys and other important info for local families.
(Hours flexible): Are you looking to improve your communications skills? Family Future’s is looking for someone to work at our front desk. Duties include answering the phone, greeting people when they enter our office, and other administrative tasks.
Devin was born completely deaf in both ears. At age two, he was the youngest person ever to receive a cochlear implant — a device that allows completely deaf people to hear. This small device completely changed his life. Now, he is a young adult who would not be looking toward his future graduation and nonprofit work if he did not have the support of his family through it all.
When deciding on an internship for the summer, Devin applied to only one place, Family Futures. He found the testimonies of past student interns of Family Futures to be true.
“You’re actually doing something,” he says, “you’re actually making an impact for kids.”
