"Being a youth caregiver was one of the formative experiences of my life. It shapes my perspective on almost all things, for good, and regrettably, sometimes for bad. Volunteering with AACY has helped me turn even the traumatizing aspects of that experience to some positive benefit, both for me, and for the kids we support. It has been one of the most rewarding endeavors I've ever been a part of, and an experience I am deeply grateful for."

Only an hour or two of your time can change a person’s life!

“People of all ages helping people of all ages.”

When children assist family members who are chronically ill, injured, aging or disabled, they need extra special support in their education as well as in their caregiving role. They also need a chance to experience childhood fun!
Please volunteer with us to allow student caregivers to experience that childhood fun! Volunteers help with a variety of activities – in the office or out. The Caregiving Youth Project plans weekend camps, fishing trips, computer classes, beach parties, cooking classes, and health care classes.
Volunteers help in a variety of ways. Some may drive a caregiving youth to an activity while others serve as mentors and tutors, others help with events or in the office. These are just a few of the volunteer opportunities that are available.
Volunteers can make a significant difference in the quality of life of an entire family. Only an hour or two of your time can change a person’s life!
