Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are essential to Sweetser’s work. They add life experience, diverse interests and unique abilities, extending the network of care we offer to children, adults, families, and communities. Volunteer opportunities are available from Kittery to Bangor. Whether you volunteer for one hour or 100 hours — you can make a difference.   

Ways to Volunteer

There are countless ways you can volunteer with Sweetser at one of our locations.

We often have one-day projects and events that you, your group or business may be able to support, such as painting, landscaping, or running an activity. Likewise, there are opportunities to share your time and talents on a more regular basis.

Here are a few possibilities for how you might contribute:

  • Sharing a special talent or skill that translates into a programming opportunity (i.e., group sports, game nights, yoga, etc.)
  • Applying your administrative skills
  • Providing physical labor to help spruce up our interior and exterior spaces

Whatever your skill or talent may be, reach out to explore how you can make a difference.

Immediate Needs

While there are many ways in which volunteers can help, our current areas of greatest need are:

  • Storeroom Clerk – Saco Campus, 20-hours per week
  • Administrative Assistant – Saco Administration Office
  • School Librarian – Saco Campus
