Hillside’s Volunteer Program

Hillside welcomes group and individual volunteers to participate in our mission of providing healing and hope to children and families!

Group Volunteers

Our group volunteer program (corporate, religious, or civic) provides employees or members with opportunities to give back as a team. Your group can make a difference by adopting a holiday, helping beautify a garden or play area, sponsoring a club, or by bringing a special skill set or experience to share with our youth. We will gladly work with you to design a volunteer experience that supplements and expands Hillside’s services while promoting a better understanding of mental health services.

Individual Volunteers

Individual volunteers not only lend to the diversification of services, but help with the overall treatment of our youth. Your ongoing volunteerism supports our services and brings new experiences to the children we serve. Volunteers can facilitate after school and weekend programs, assist in our weekly experiential therapies, provide administrative support, etc.  

All potential individual volunteers are fully vetted through reference-checks, background clearances, and an orientation. Both group and individual volunteers are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement upon arrival to campus.

For more information, please contact Gabriella Marvin at gmarvin@hside.org
