Our Child Development Lab is happy to provide volunteer opportunities for college students from various programs.
Volunteers will have the opportunity to:
- Work with highly skilled teachers and assist them in providing activities that promote the child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development
- Provide support working with children on their daily routines
- Provide one-on-one individual attention to children, including children from diverse cultural background
- Help supervise activities to ensure the safety of children all times
The Child Development Lab is open year-round from 7:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. M-F. In order to provide consistency for children, we ask that volunteers commit to at least three hours per week for a minimum of 10 weeks.
Note: If interested for the Spring 2018 semester, please send in application after registering for Spring classes. Applications are due by January 6th.
To apply: please fill out a Volunteer Application and submit it to Kristin Orlowski, the Research & Student Coordinator at: CDLplacements@sohe.wisc.edu
Before volunteering, individuals must pass a criminal records background check. Volunteers must also attend a program orientation prior to working with children.
