We have a variety of volunteer positions ranging from ongoing opportunities, to projects to group volunteering. Read more about them below.

Volunteer Projects:

For those who are unable to commit to ongoing volunteer positions, Cleveland Sight Center offers volunteer projects that do not require continuous commitment beyond the completion of defined projects. Those who support volunteer projects contribute to Cleveland Sight Center's mission in critical ways, providing resources that fuel our programs and deeply impact our clients.
