Become a Volunteer
The health and safety of the children we serve as well as our volunteers is of the utmost importance at Alexander Youth Network. We are following state and local guidelines and have put several safety protocols in place to ensure the safety of children, staff, and volunteers. In accordance with guidelines set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, all in-person volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
