Are you a parent/caregiver who…

  • Is interested in advocating for your child as well as other families in Watauga County?
  • Looking to participate in a team?
  • Is creative, thoughtful, and comfortable sharing opinions?

Parent volunteers participate in frequent Steering Committee meetings as well as other monthly sub committee meetings of their choice.

Benefits of becoming a parent volunteer:

  • Building skills to work with community agencies and leaders.
  • Receive reimbursement for your time ($20/hour).
  • Receive training on a variety of topics such as advocacy, and more!
