AOK ambassadorship

AOK ambassadors are trained to speak to other organizations and community members about AOK’s work and the critical importance of supporting foster families.

Community outreach

Help us spread the word about how businesses and community members alike can support our mission. There's an important place at this table for everyone.

Staff our community store

Help us sort donations, maintain our store, and help our families shop. This is a vibrant resource you'll be happy to be part of.

Photography and media

Volunteer photographers and people with media expertise help us communicate well.

Managing information and data

Well organized systems keep AOK running smoothly and help us reach families effectively.

Social media contact

Volunteers with social media savvy broaden our connections.

Supporting our members

Personal acts of service can make an enormous difference for AOK foster families, particularly at critical moments, such as when a new child enters the family. Cooking a meal, mowing a lawn, walking a dog, or helping with childcare are the sorts of personalized support that can go a long way for our families.

Whatever talents or interests you have, we will find a place for you on our team!

If you're interested in joining our amazing team in fulfilling our mission to foster community, raise awareness, and support families, please submit a volunteer inquiry with us. We can't wait to talk to you about these possibilities!
