volunteer at the senior center

There are countless ways for individuals or groups to get involved at our Senior Center: call bingo, offer refreshments, clean and organize, garden and landscape, etc. We welcome all kinds of volunteers—families, academic cohorts, faith groups, or companies; 6-year-olds, or 60; teams of three, or thirty. Whether can spare one hour—or eight—we are happy to tailor a project to your needs!

For further details, please email Senior Center Director Anne Miller at amiller@donbosco.org or call (816) 691-2807.

Tutor at the ESL School

Our ESL School is always in need of dedicated members of the community interested in serving as volunteer tutors for adult learners seeking to improve their reading, writing and math skills. Interested persons will be required to complete a background check.

For further details, please email Director of Adult & Community Education Deborah Briggs at deborah_briggs@isdschools.org or call (816) 231-2700.



Participate in Events

Whether it’s the annual Savor the Flavors benefit at the Downtown Marriott, our dance party at Knuckleheads, the Bosco Brew Bus brewery tour, or our brand new 5K event, we’re always planning occasions to celebrate our mission with supporters, and we’d love to have you join us!

Discover all the fun to be had at our Events page.

Help out for the Holidays

Looking to volunteer during the holidays? Consider participating in Don Bosco’s Blanket Drive or our Holiday Friends gifting program. You can choose to “adopt” and shop for specific individuals, provide general items that will be distributed among seniors or families of ESL students, volunteer at a holiday event, donate financially—or any combination of these options.

Give us a call or email us to learn more: (816) 691-2900 | holidayfriends@donbosco.org
