Hi everyone, I would like to welcome you to the SE4SK Family!!!!
First, I will tell you a little about us, we have been around for 4 years (1st event feb 2016), I along with my 17 year old daughter Alyssia organize and host FREE events for children with special needs and or disabilities in southern NJ. We started with one event in 2016 and now we host between 12-16 events a year. Every event is FREE and we try to make sure the kids always leave with a gift.
As a volunteer you will receive an email before an event making you aware of what items are needed and if I need any volunteers for this event. You will also receive our newsletter that comes out 4-6 times a year. If you want to volunteer for a specific events please do not hesitate to contact me directly, I have a strong group of volunteers and rely on them a lot, so sometimes I forget to ask others if they want to help. I am always open to new things, if you have a contact, (example someone who will donate a hall or a specific item) please let me know we can always make it work.
We also have youth volunteers but I ONLY accept students 9th grade and up, possibly 7th and 8th depending on the event, and yes I will type up a volunteering letter if it is needed. We appreciate all donations and any volunteering time people give us.. Without the help of our volunteers and our sponsors we would not be able to host all these events.
We are now a nonprofit 501c3. We run on donations and we do a couple fundraisers a year to help offset the costs. If you have an idea for fundraising, by all means set it up, I am always up for someone taking charge and helping us raise the funds we need to continue on with these events. I have attached a form, please fill it out and get it back to me so we can update our records. I would like to thank you again, and welcome to the SE4SK Family.
As a volunteer we always ask that you wear a RED Shirt, we do provide shirts a couple times a year, when you come to an event please ask if we have any shirts in your size. We are a judgment free zone, we make sure to include each child no matter what, feel free to adapt to that child, if you are running a game, feel free to change it up so they can enjoy it as well. We have a variety of children, all different levels, it’s hard to accommodate everyone, but we try our BEST!!!
I want to again thank you again for reaching out to help, if you should have any additional questions, please feel free to give me a call or text at 856-264-9386. We are also in the process of adapting a new background check policy, I will let you know when that is up and ready to go!!!
As of 8/1/19 All adult volunteers must have a recent background check, we currently use www.directscreening.com, these background checks will need to be done every 5 years. You are responsible for the payment, please pick the National Option, the cost is around $17.00.
And Again, Welcome to the SE4SK Family!!!!
