Information To Know

Q: Do volunteers have the opportunity to interact with Dragonfly families?

A: It depends on the the volunteer's security level and the type of role they serve. The closer volunteers get to our Dragonflies -- and our resources/information -- the more protective we are.

Q: What is Dragonfly's Student Programs and how can volunteers get involved?

A: We want to help kids to make a difference at home, at school, and in their community. To this end, we have created programs to engage students and to encourage kindness, compassion, and philanthropy. We call them:

  • Camp Dragonfly: a camp for incoming 5th/6th graders
  • Student Ambassador Program: for school-age students

These programs are just more ways we work to build a community of support for our Dragonfly patients and families.

Volunteers are needed to mentor and support these programs.

Q: How can minors and young adults support Dragonfly?

A: We have so many ways they can help us! In fact, our list is two pages long! Here are just some of them:

  • Collect used sports equipment from neighbors. Turn in what they collect to a reseller and donate the money back to Dragonfly
  • Have them involve friends in holding a walk/run in their neighborhood, or participate in other Dragonfly-related events
  • Have them ask their school (or their parents' employer) to host a coin drive, or toy or gift card drive
  • Staff information tables at events
  • Distribute event flyers
  • Have them reach out to request that local businesses support Dragonfly
  • Wear our shirts and use our bumper stickers
