Bethany Christian Services

Bethany volunteers enrich the lives of others in many ways. By becoming a volunteer, you can help our ministry improve the lives of children in your community and around the world.

Bethany has offices all over the country that need the help of volunteers. Opportunities may vary depending on the needs of your local Bethany office. Your local office may need help with a special event, such as a fund-raiser, picnic, or golf outing. They may also need your help with clerical duties, such as answering telephones, doing data entry, or preparing special mailings. In some locations where we offer foster care, we need mentors to develop a one-on-one relationship with a child in foster care. You will be a role model and mentor who helps a child discover his or her unique qualities.

Please contact the office nearest you to see how you can help!

Grand Rapids Children’s Museum

Volunteers play a critical part in our mission “to celebrate childhood and the joy of learning by providing an exciting hands-on environment that inspires learning and encourages self-directed exploration.” At the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum, volunteers play with children, help to build and maintain exhibits, explore art with families, help in the office, and offer their time and skills in many other ways! Most importantly, no matter where you volunteer at the Museum, you make a difference in the lives of children!

Our Youth Volunteers range in age from 14 to 18. Youth Volunteers usually spend their time interacting directly with Museum visitors. This volunteer position is called a Facilitator. To find out what a facilitator does please CLICK HERE!

You can become part of the Club experience by investing time with Club members. Regular volunteers work with one or more of our core program areas and provide a positive influence and safe environment by committing two or more hours at the same time each week. Speaking with a staff member, such as the Volunteer Coordinator, is a great way to decide what kind of Club service is right for you. There is never a wrong time to enhance the character of youth in Grand Rapids.
