Carver engages more than 500 volunteers throughout the year. Carver volunteers are integrated throughout the Norwalk community and schools as they contribute to Carver’s three intense areas of after-school, summer and community programs. These tutors, mentors, homework helpers, career counselors, and other skill-specific project leaders offer their support, feedback and praise. The community center utilizes individual and groups of volunteers for community events such as Career Fairs, talent contests, student and family awards ceremonies, holiday celebrations, food drives, etc. Corporate teams produce daylong events for our youth and undertake extensive renovation and cleanup projects. Carver dedicates one staff person to volunteer management.
