Community Volunteer Support

Strategies for Change welcomes volunteer support for short and long-range projects. Our aim is to create a satisfying experience for everyone involved and we look forward to finding the ideal match for adult and youth volunteers looking to make a positive difference in our community.  Please review our "wish list" for curent needs.

Please consider:

Support our Playground

On Thursday, September 24th volunteers converted a portion of our parking lot into a playground. The playground will help children in our care learn, grow and develop a positive sense of self. If you would like more information or want to support the care and stewardship of the play area, call Anne Fenkner (916) 473-5764 x 226  or

Children's Activities

Our childcare department would benefit from your insight, energy and interest by providing activities for infants, toddlers and youngsters up to 10-years old. Planning fun and engaging activities, and assembling the needed items, would be of great help to our 2 full time and 2 part-time childcare workers.

Professional Expertise

Strategies for Change welcomes individual and professional support in the areas of: nutrition, financial literacy, interview prep, dental hygiene, legal awareness, and representation from other professions. Support ranges from participating in our speakers series to conducting workshops within in our 1-Day (advanced) program.


We own the building at 4343 Williamsbourgh Drive, 95823. We do not have an on-site facility manager and a volunteer handyperson would be very helpful – from changing light bulbs, ensuring proper irrigation, touch –up paint… the little things add up! Facility care is a great opportunity for an individual, large and small groups. We could use group/team help applying wood chips as mulch, washing windows, gardening… etc.


For those with web design, tech or marketing skills, Strategies for Change welcomes support to update our web, IT and marketing.

Administrative support

We currently have 4 retirees spending up 15 hours a week on administrative support such as reception, organizational support and general administrative support, such as scanning documents. We could use more.

Please contact Anne Fenkner for details.
