At DVCCC we have three types of volunteer opportunities available:

  • Direct Volunteers are those who work directly in any way with participants or their children, do administrative work, and/or represent the agency with community outreach.

  • Project volunteers are those who want to help our agency, but do not have time availability to commit to being a direct volunteer. These volunteers are contacted on an as-needed basis when there is a project to be completed, and they help if they are available.

  • The Friends of DVCCC are an independent, volunteer-based group that works to organize fundraising and awareness events for our agency. If you enjoy planning events, raising funds and awareness for awesome causes, and want to engage with the Chester County community in a meaningful way, this is the perfect fit for you!
