Volunteer at Brighton Center

Brighton Center takes the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, guests, and customers seriously. We continue to make changes to our safety protocol as we learn and receive guidance from our State and local health departments and the CDC.

Our volunteers are an important part of our team. At this time everyone (staff, volunteers, guests, and customers) are required to wear a mask at all times while on-site at any of our buildings or when outside in close proximity of each other. We are requiring weekly testing for all unvaccinated individuals working or volunteering on-site at Brighton Center locations.

All volunteers, individuals, and those that are part of a volunteer group, need to show full vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test result from within 72 hours of the first day of volunteering.

We are making intentional efforts to maintain a safe working environment for all and we greatly appreciate your cooperation as we work through this challenging time.

Brighton Center celebrates victories as families move toward self-sufficiency. Every victory is aided by the compassion of our donors and the commitment of our volunteers. Through our work together we can make a difference in improving the quality of life for those we serve.

Do you know how much your time is worth to Brighton Center? Every hour you volunteer equates to a $24.14 donation – that means when you spend an hour mentoring youth or working in our Choice Food Pantry or reading a book to a child, you save the Center $24.14. That’s over $190 for one day of volunteerism!

Our volunteers mean the world to us. Last year 1,174 volunteers helped to impact lives the lives of individuals across Northern Kentucky. 
Brighton Center has a mission to create opportunities for individuals and families to reach self-sufficiency through family support services, education, employment, and leadership. We achieve this by providing critical programs and services that help our community grow and thrive.
In response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, Brighton Center is committed to providing essential services to the community. The health and safety of our staff, customers, volunteers, and community is of the utmost importance as we navigate the current health crisis. We are beginning to welcome volunteers back into certain roles within the agency.
