Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Britepaths!


The success of our programs relies heavily on volunteer support. In Fiscal Year 2022, 443 volunteers served 5,192 hours to assist our staff and provide mentoring, training and other supports to our families. Read some of our volunteer stories here.

Due to the pandemic, many of our volunteer opportunities are virtual, but we are also offering in-person opportunities where appropriate. In addition to the opportunities listed below, a great way to support us is to help your friends and family learn about us and our work in the community.
