We invite you to consider the list of volunteer opportunities below and to join our volunteer team in whatever role is right for you.
For more than a century, Florence Crittenton has been supported by hundreds of caring volunteers who generously give their time, spirit, and dedication to benefit thousands of youth and our community every year. We look forward to welcoming you to our volunteer family!
WINGS, Women Involved in Nurturing Girls’ Self-Esteem, is a highly-structured mentoring program that pairs a girl in one of Florence Crittenton’s programs with a positive female role model from the local community.
Through the mentor relationship, girls are exposed to positive role modeling, honest and supportive feedback, and the ability to explore and develop their own interests.
In order to qualify as a mentor, Florence Crittenton requires a Fingerprint Clearance Card, TB test within the last year and CPR/ First Aid certification. Mentors are asked to make a 6 month commitment.
Women INSPIRING teenage girls through personal stories of life’s overwhelming challenges and eventual triumphs—the program enables women to INSPIRE young women by sharing their personal experiences with overcoming obstacles, developing self-esteem and achieving goals and dreams.
INSPIRE Mission Statement:
Women INSPIRING the teenage girls of Florence Crittenton through personal stories of life’s overwhelming challenges . . . and eventual triumphs.
Women INSPIRING teenage girls through personal stories of life’s overwhelming challenges and eventual triumphs—the program enables women to INSPIRE young women by sharing their personal experiences with overcoming obstacles, developing self-esteem and achieving goals and dreams. Sharing these stores in a group setting gives girls a higher level of self-awareness, confidence, character and achievement.
On the fourth Wednesday of each month, three INSPIRE members share their stories before an intimate group of about 15-20 girls with a facilitator to guide the discussion. INSPIRE members chronicle their lives of hardship and adversity, such as parental conflict, substance abuse, academic challenges, falling in with the wrong crowd, teenage pregnancy, abandonment, depression, low self-esteem, etc.

“Friends” of Florence Crittenton
Similar to a mentor, a Friend of Florence Crittenton spends time on our campus with the girls playing games, talking and just having fun. A female volunteer provides friendly relationships with the girls in an assigned cottage that share common interests. “Friends” are responsible for fostering a positive relationship with our girls in the cottages. They participate in a variety of interactive activities and provide positive encouragement as the girls work through their treatment plans.
Tutors will provide educational instruction and guidance to individual students utilizing their online learning program and individual course modules— assisting teen girls between the ages of 12 and 18 with various school subjects. Tutors support and encourage the students in reaching their full academic potential.
As Florence Crittenton continues to grow, so does the need for extra organizational support in our various administrative offices. Volunteers are needed to help with office duties such as creating and updating databases, filing, preparing marketing packets and mailings, answering phones, and typing. Computer skills and administrative experience are helpful.
The Teaming Up For Girls Luncheon, Heels for Healing, TLC Dance and holiday drives are the special events held throughout the year to fund Florence Crittenton’s life-changing programs. And, volunteers are key to making these events successful. From help with pre-event preparation, such as mailings or setting up tables, to day of event duties such as guest registration and raffle ticket sales, opportunities abound for volunteers to get involved and have a great time serving Arizona’s kids.
Florence Crittenton values the unique gifts, services and projects that volunteers have brought, and continue to bring, to our agency and our clients. From beautifying our grounds to guest speaking about your hobbies or other areas of expertise, we welcome you to share your time, talents and interests.
