Becoming a Special Spaces volunteer
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with Special Spaces. Our organization is built on 100% volunteer support. Each Chapter has unique opportunities and availability. Please complete the following form and it will be directed to the Chapter nearest to you. The volunteer Chapter Director will be contacting you to explain how you can get started with Special Spaces.
Will I be designing the bedroom makeover?
No, the bedroom makeover plan is created by local designers and/or team Directors.
Do I need to have special skills to help?
No, we invite individuals with all skill levels to volunteer.
What I will be asked to do?
Jobs can vary based upon the plan for the makeover. Typical jobs include painting, cleaning, assembly work, crafts, sewing, ironing, lunch coordinator and creating custom décor.
I’m a skilled contractor, can I help?
We are always looking for skilled contractors to join our teams.
Is there any age requirement to volunteer?
All volunteers must be over the age of 16 or have prior Director approval before arriving to the job site.
Can I bring my own children to help?
Due to the compromised immune systems of our Special Spaces children, we ask that you do not bring your own children to the makeover.
What should I wear?
The Special Spaces day is a “hands-on” work experience. We recommend wearing clothing that can get dirty and closed toe shoes. Please leave all valuables at home.
What if I’m sick on the day of the makeover?
Please contact the assigned Director and let her/him know that you will not be attending. It is very important that all of our volunteers are in good health.
What if my plans change and I can’t be there?
As we assign tasks to each team member, it is important that you contact the Director and let her/him know that you will not be there.
