Volunteer with CMCA!

Welcome to Central Missouri Community Action (CMCA)! We’re so happy that you’re interested in supporting our work as a volunteer. CMCA proudly offers programs and services that support individuals, families, and communities by addressing the conditions of poverty and helping to find ways to eliminate it.

“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

As a volunteer, you will be a part of the Community Action Movement, working alongside our employees to support the work we are doing in the very community you call home!

Whether you choose to volunteer to assist in a Head Start center, serve as a foster grandparent, or choose to help with special projects, we’re grateful to have you working with us side by side. As a CMCA volunteer, you are living the promise of community by helping people help themselves and each other.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities in the eight Mid-Missouri counties we serve:

We also have opportunities to support our Head Start Centers in Benton, Howard, and Morgan counties.
