When you volunteer with SBSK, you will be introduced to a friendly environment filled with high energy, smiles, and laughter from our children and staff. There are many ways to contribute to our programs from helping with homework, supervising games, art projects, or offering guidance and mentoring. By lending your time and skills you are helping to encourage and equip students to reach their highest potential.

Meet Mackenzie, SBSK Volunteer

"Serving with Side by Side Kids has been one of my greatest blessings here in town, and the kids at J.J. Pickle have become like family to me. As someone who has always loved learning and school, helping the students with academic fundamentals like math, reading, and ESL is a true joy. But in many ways, the kids are the ones teaching me. Their full spirits and wide-eyed wonder are a constant reminder of what it means to have childlike faith." -Mackenzie
