YOU CAN HELP

We welcome students, retirees and professionals! If you have specific skills and interests, please contact Kid Healthy with a detailed idea of how you’d like to help or choose from the following:

Padres En Accion:
Get on the playground with Padres En Accion. As a volunteer, you will set up and lead a physical activity or game station. Padres En Accion occurs during lunch recess (11:00-1:00) on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

If you are a parent at a school site that has Padres En Accion, call or visit the front office for more information about volunteering.

If you are not a parent at a school site, but would still like to volunteer, you will need to complete the following steps:
• Contact Kelsey Markland at kelsey@mykidhealthy.org to express your interest in volunteering
