Here at Cherry Street it seems as if no one is too old or too young to lend a helping hand. The high level of dedication of our volunteers and staff is the reason Cherry Street has been so successful. We have over 60 volunteers from all parts of our community including school teachers, ministers, paraprofessionals, extension agents, businessmen and women, retirees, and parents of the children who attend. Altogether, the volunteers at the Center have spent over 271 years in the teaching profession.
Our volunteers are caring and concerned community citizens who give of their time and talents to help the children. They believe that with the proper opportunities and guidance, all children can become responsible and productive citizens. Each volunteer undergoes an initial and ongoing training in which they are given information about working with at risk children.
