Can I be involved if I can’t make a weekly commitment?

Yes.  We have the Once & Dones program for just that!  Most opportunities are offered on the weekends.  There is no long term commitment and you have a chance to do something different.

Is it true that I can get paid to volunteer?

Yes it is.  If you qualify for Federal Work Study, you can use Rays of Sunshine’s tutoring program as your Work Study job.  However, it is NOT a requirement to do volunteer work.  Many registered participants are simply volunteers.

How do I make Rays of Sunshine my work study job?

Visit the Financial Assistance Office in Kennedy.  They will be able to tell you if you qualify for Work Study monies.  If you do, fill out a Student Employee Referral Form and have it signed by someone in Financial Assistance, then bring it to Dougherty 214A.
