We Need You Here!

Native Plant Gardening

The grounds around the Snowden House on the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve have been transformed into native plant gardens with over 100 different species by a dedicated group of volunteers. We’re looking for help with weeding, watering, and planting, as well as other work around the preserve tract including invasive plant removal and trail maintenance. We work together for a few hours and then eat our brown-bag lunches on the porch.

Camp Texlake Clean-Up & Summer Prep

Come help us get ready for summer camp season! We will be sprucing up Camp Texlake, which experienced flood damage in the fall, by picking up trash and debris from the flooding, fire ring re-setting, and some other tasks that will prepare us for Girl Scout camp in the summer. Volunteers will be outdoors, so wear sturdy closed-toed shoes, clothes you don't mind getting a little dirty, a hat, and long pants are highly recommended! Bring a refillable water bottle and, if you have them, work gloves (we will have extra gloves on site). We will provide lunch, snacks, and water.

Become a CASA Volunteer

Speak up for a child who’s been abused or neglected. Volunteer with CASA of Travis County! CASA of Travis County speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. CASA volunteers come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children’s lives, a willingness to learn, and an open mind towards life experiences different from their own. Volunteers complete an interview, background checks and a 39-hour intensive training program including courtroom observation. After being sworn in by a judge, volunteers are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 15-20 hours a month advocating for these children for the lifetime of a case (17 months on average). They get to know the child while also gathering information from the child’s family, teachers, doctors, caregivers and anyone else involved in the child’s life in order to make independent and informed recommendations to help the judge decide what’s best for the child. For children who’ve been abused or neglected, CASA means having a home instead of feeling lost, and being a priority instead of feeling invisible. For volunteers, CASA is a life-changing experience that makes our community a better place. To learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer, visit www.casatravis.org/volunteer or call 512.459.2272. You can also RSVP for an upcoming Volunteer Info Session by visiting www.casatravis.org/volunteer/infosession.

ACGC Children's Healing Garden

Come out and help Austin Child Guidance Center beautify our Children's Healing Garden. The Children’s Healing Garden was created to provide an aesthetically pleasing environment for our clients to further aid in their healing process. As a society, we have a need for nature and we wanted to provide our clients, as well as the community, with a safe place to reconnect with nature and reflect. Our therapists and volunteers frequently use this space during client sessions and community events. We would greatly benefit from help with maintenance of our outdoor space including weeding, mulching or the addition of any native Texas plant and/or grass seed donations. This will greatly help beautify the garden and make it a more welcoming environment for our clients and their families receiving therapy services at ACGC. ACGC's services ensure that children suffering from emotional and behavioral problems will receive the help they need and deserve, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Your investment will have immediate and long-term impacts for children who otherwise might not have access to mental health services. We greatly appreciate your support of helping in our mission to create a world in which all children have the social and emotional skills to have healthy relationships, to be successful in school, and to grow up to be positive, contributing members of their community.
