Volunteer Engagement

Engage. Connect. Inspire. Volunteer. A brighter future awaits.



As an established leader in early childhood education, Collaborative for Children strives toward innovation while creating inclusive opportunities designed for Volunteers to, directly and indirectly, inspire a high-quality learning experience for children.



Through our collective volunteer approach, we encourage all current and future volunteers to ENGAGE with Collaborative. CONNECT yourself to our programs and help us to INSPIRE and shape the educational journey of school age children.



Collaborative for Children touches the lives of more than 103,000 children and families per year in the 13-county Houston-Galveston region.

Help shape the educational journey of school-age children! These experiences through volunteer engagement with Collaborative, will build a stronger supportive relationship for the parent, teacher, and community.
