Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Cincinnati Union Bethel.
Early Childhood Education
Our preschools need volunteers for a number of tasks. Some of the volunteers work directly with the children, who are three to five years old; some do not. All volunteers work with teaching staff to ensure safe, educational opportunities for our children.
There is a screening process in order to protect the children in our care. Often volunteers must undergo a physical, including a Tuberculosis test, and a criminal background check, but the requirements vary depending on what you will be doing. We will be happy to explain the paperwork and outline what is needed to do this important work.
