We truly believe that your service – whether it’s behind the scenes or working directly with the children – will have a massive impact on the hearts of these children. Our volunteers range in age, ethnicity, and work experience, but one thing they all have in common is that they have huge HEARTS!

About Volunteering at COV

In a typical year we partner with local middle school and high school students to volunteer in the following areas: virtual homework tutor, Facebook Live read-aloud host, and virtual enrichment activity leader. This is an opportunity for students to earn volunteer hours, learn job skills, and give back to the community. Teen volunteers will need to complete the volunteer application along with the contract below:



We also partner with local college students to volunteer in many areas. The last two years we had the Skagit Valley College Baseball Team of 40 members volunteer on a regular basis. This is a great opportunity to teach our students a skill such as baseball. It encouraged 16 of our COV students to join the Mount Vernon – Conway Youth Baseball League. We have also had many college student interns at COV who are interested in pursuing a career in education.


Finally a large group of our volunteers are retired professionals. They have great insight to help out students and our staff. We often have retired teachers, military members, and business owners who can teach our students some great lessons. The opportunities are endless! Please share with us what skill, interest, or talent you would want to teach our students.

If you are interested in volunteering please complete the application below and you will be contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator shortly to complete the next step in the process.
