Volunteer Opportunities

Educare Lincoln is an Early Childhood School for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. At Educare, we believe everyone deserves a fair chance to achieve their dreams, and it starts by leveling the playing field from the day we’re born. As one of the nation’s most effective early childhood schools, we make sure financially disadvantaged young children have the best possible chance for success in life. Our approach extends beyond the classroom to help children, families and communities thrive.

We are always looking for great volunteers at Educare Lincoln. We have opportunities to volunteer in the classrooms, helping in our kitchen, and assisting with special program events and activities.
