Join Center Corps Auxiliary or Emerging Leaders Young Professionals to volunteer with Centers for Youth and Families!
Being part of Center Corps Auxiliary & Emerging Leaders is the best way to learn about volunteer opportunities, give back to The Centers’ mission, and network with others.
Center Corps & Emerging Leader volunteers host activities like cookouts, holiday celebrations or game nights for boys and girls in our residential programs. They lead toy drives, school supply drives, and serve on committees to plan fundraising events.
We ask Center Corps & Emerging Leader volunteers to give a gift of $120/year (or, $10/month). You will receive monthly e-newsletters detailing volunteer opportunities, and you will be invited to quarterly meetings and social events.
Service. Leadership. Philanthropy.
These are the three pillars of Champions of Hope, a group for young men in their junior or senior year at schools across the Little Rock Metro, which gives them a unique opportunity to engage with The Centers and work to support the organization’s mission. Champions engage in volunteer opportunities, learn skills from local leaders, and make a positive impact in the community by participating in philanthropic events throughout the school year.
Champions and their families complete a tax-deductible gift commitment of $1,500 to be given or raised to benefit boys and girls to overcome trauma and abuse and create pathways to success. The Centers’ will provide support for fundraising activities. The program concludes with a special presentation at The Centers’ signature event, The Evolve Gala, each spring.
Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis.
Applications are accepted June 1, 2022 through August 1, 2022.

A fan favorite event among Centers supporters and beyond is none other than a festival of brunch. Celebrating Central Arkansas fare with samples from over 30 of the area’s best eateries, the event features all your brunching essentials – from mimosas and bloody marys to merchandise and music. Most importantly, BrunchFest pairs two pillars of your community – local restaurants and a local cause. Cheers to that! Sponsorship information coming soon.
Featuring a raffle, tournament games, team photos, a player’s tee gift and awards ceremony, we invite you spend the holiday with us – bettering your community and helping those in need who call it home.
The Centers for Youth and Families Foundation extends our gratitude to the hundreds of individuals, corporations and foundations that committed to changing lives of individuals and families in need in 2021.
