Join us for one of our many volunteer events!

At Kramden, we are an organization of the community and for the community. We could not do what we do without the support of thousands of volunteers who generously give their time and passion.

From refurbishing computers to award days where we give these computers to great students, to recycling drives around the state – we are always looking for volunteers with a passion for our mission and a willingness to help.

Mandatory Service

Kramden Institute welcomes select volunteers needing to complete court-related community service. Community service hours for any court-related requirement includes, but is not limited to, any lawyer-recommended service, court-appointed service as well as individuals needing to complete hours for a pending charge. If you are unsure whether you fall into these categories, please email us at volunteers@kramden.org

The Director of Programs will review Kramden’s current volunteer needs, schedule and code of conduct.

Additionally, all volunteers must first complete the New Volunteer Information Form and any volunteer under the age of 18 must return this form with a signed parental release before any volunteer hours are completed.
