Current Volunteer Opportunities
Roots of Empathy
This ground-breaking elementary school-based program has been proven to reduce levels of aggression among children while simultaneously raising social and emotional competence and increasing empathy.
The mission of Roots of Empathy is to build caring, peaceful and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults.
Since 1996, over 1,000,000 children worldwide have participated in this award-winning program. Our programming season begins each September so we are actively recruiting volunteer facilitators and families between
May – August each year.
Volunteers are needed in the roles of program facilitators/instructors and the very special babies and their parents that are our “teachers.”
