Volunteer Opportunities



Tumbleweed usually has several volunteer opportunities available for individual volunteers and occasionally has volunteer opportunities for group volunteers. We do not have a specific community service program or liaison. Tumbleweed usually has both long- and short-term opportunities; some of these do include direct work with our youth and some are administrative only.

If you are interested in volunteering with youth, a fingerprint background check is required due to licensing regulations, a $42 cost to you. Tumbleweed will help you through the fingerprint and clearance card processes through the Arizona Department of Public Safety. As a prospective ongoing volunteer working directly with youth, you would also need to go through a formal interview and application process.

Please download Tumbleweed’s Volunteer Services Application and review each of our programs for the specific current volunteer options where applicable. The application will also list other administrative, fundraising (special events) and facilities opportunities that are usually available on an ongoing basis.
