During our many years of providing services to at-risk youth and families in Lane County,  Looking Glass has counted on the generous contribution of time and energy from community members.  In fact, Looking Glass started as an all-volunteer agency of dedicated people who embraced the concept that healthy kids lead to healthy futures.  Today, we still need the valuable help of volunteers and interns to support and assist our professional staff.  The truth is, volunteers, who give so much of themselves, are the lifeblood of our agency.

Whether you would like to volunteer at a particular program or help us prepare for and run a community event, there are many opportunities to donate your time, energy, and talents to Looking Glass.  The first step in volunteering regularly for one of our programs is connecting with our Human Resources Department by filling out an interest form here.  

If you’re interested in volunteering for one of our annual fundraising events, Holiday Giving Tree Project, or other special projects, please contact our Development Coordinator here to discuss your interests and availability.
