The Village is indebted to the countless volunteers who assist us throughout the year! We appreciate the support our volunteers provide, and we think they may gain as much from their experiences with our Villagers as the Villagers gain from the volunteers’ selfless giving of their time and talent.
We welcome all individuals and organizations to join us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities. We encourage you to review the volunteer opportunity descriptions below and contact us if you are interested in helping. Please note a required application process must be completed for our on-site volunteers.
How to become a volunteer at The Village Centers
An application and background check must be completed prior to volunteering in one of our facilities.
There are two steps to completing the volunteer application. Both can be found on this page.
Step #1: Complete and submit the Volunteer Online Application.
Step #2: Download the Required Volunteer Forms. You may return your completed and signed forms along with a copy of your Driver's License to Eileen Simonetty at email@example.com or The Village Admin Building, 3946 Glade Valley Dr., Kingwood, TX 77339.
*Background checks must be updated every year.
The Village Centers Volunteers
Are there any age requirements?
Those 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Is there anything I need to do before I volunteer?
Yes, please complete the application process on our website. You will need to wait until you get an email saying that you have been approved before you can begin to volunteer.

School appropriate clothing. You can wear your organization's shirt. No short shorts or skirts.

Will there be a background check on everyone?
We will run a background check on all adults 18 and older. If you are still in high school, it will not be necessary.
What type of jobs will I be doing?
That will vary based on where you will be volunteering. When you sign up, there will be brief descriptions of what you will be doing.
Do I need to bring identification?
You will be given a volunteer badge with your name on it. You will be required to wear it while volunteering at any of our locations.
What if I need to have a form signed stating the hours I have volunteered?
You can bring your form with you and the teacher and/or manager will sign them for you.
