CAM simply could not run without our volunteers! There are many areas where you can use your talents. For volunteers under 16 years old, please read below for CAM’s Volunteer Policy for Youth. We appreciate the wonderful gift of your time and would love to welcome you to the CAM family!
Our Volunteer Services team will help you figure out your best-fit volunteer opportunity. All volunteers attend a brief orientation and tour our facility.Volunteer with CAM
We love our volunteers!
Are you interested in volunteering with a group? Bring your friends, coworkers, Sunday school class, organization, etc. We have a different volunteer sign-up process for groups — please contact our director of volunteer services at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cypress Assistance Ministries appreciates young volunteers and the role they play in serving our community! Below are guidelines for volunteering.
Volunteers 16 years and older may volunteer without adult supervision once they complete the volunteer application and tour. No volunteer hours may be completed until these steps have been taken. High School and College Students must work at least 2 hours at a time with a minimum of 10 hours overall.
No children under the age of 16 are eligible to volunteer on an individual basis.
Groups of youths ages 14 and older may be eligible to work in our food pantry with adult supervision. The group must provide one adult for every 5 youths. Group volunteer projects may be available during our regular work hours and should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the date you wish to work.
Due to space constraints, there will be a limit on the number of people that can work per shift and on the days available to work.
Young volunteers have so much to offer and there are many opportunities to serve that benefit those in need who are served by CAM. For their safety, children under the age of 16 may not volunteer here in the building, but there are great projects to consider holding in other locations.
Holding a food drive, having a bake sale, setting up a lemonade stand, or having school supply drive will benefit many. Try a scavenger hunt for needed pantry items. Host a mock baby shower to collect needed baby items. Build “Flu Season Survival Kits” with over the counter cold medicines. And of course, holding a toy drive to share toys at Christmas is always wonderful.
