As a nonprofit, Yikes Tikes! relies on parent and community volunteers to help us implement our program. Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community and change the lives of young children. There are a number of ways you can get involved with Yikes Tikes!

Help out in the classroom

We are looking for parents and community members who love working with children to join in the fun! We can always use playful, mature individuals to lend a hand in our classrooms. As a Yikes Tikes! parent, your contributions are invaluable. Additionally, if you have a special talent – if you are an artist, play a musical instrument, are a story teller, have a great book you’d like to share or have an idea for a arts and crafts project – come visit our program. Our kids love music and art and we integrate these values into our curriculum as much as possible.

Plan a cultural celebration or a field trip for the class

Bring your traditions to our classroom. At Yikes Tikes! we want to expose our students to as many different cultural traditions as possible. Help us plan activities for our students around special events on the world calendar such as Ramadan, Chinese New Year, Diwali, Midori no Hi and Día de los Fieles Difuntos. We will assist you by recommending art projects, snacks and activities. Field trips are great ways to help bring Yikes Tikes! kids into the wider world, providing deep learning experiences. If you have ideas for a field trip or just want to come along on our next excursion, please step up!

Participate in our fundraisers

We are developing several exciting fundraising events and we need your help! Assist in developing, planning, decorating, catering, and programming for our events.

Help with one of our Board committees

Volunteering to help our Board of Directors is a great way to give back to your community. We need help with fundraising, long-range planning, financial planning and legal advice. If you would like to get more involved behind the scenes with Yikes Tikes! our Board of Directors needs you.
