Volunteer

Welcome to New Albany Safety Town. We appreciate your interest in our Summer program. As a camp volunteer you have a choice of working in the classroom assisting the teacher or working outside at Adventureland assisting with all of the classrooms on a daily basis.

Each year we invite middle and high school students to volunteer at camp. We invite returning volunteers the opportunity to apply in January then we welcome new students the opportunity to volunteer at camp by applying in February. To apply please contact the camp director at safetytown@newalbanypolice.org

Teacher's Assistant

As a teacher’s assistant you will take part in all camp activities wth your assigned class room campers. Responsibilities include but are not limited to: class room set-up, welcoming campers each morning, helping to get campers settled and ready to start the day, assist with daily class room activities, and field trips. You might also be asked to assist with crafts, make copies and help with boo-boos and visits to the office.

Adventureland

Each day the campers go to Adventureland to practice their bike and pedestrian skills. Being a volunteer at Adventureland provides you the opportunity to interact with each classroom for 20 minutes daily and assist with “driving skills”, teaching how to read street and traffic signs and helping them to understand how to safely use cross walks. You will also be asked to help each day with set-up and clean-up.

Requirements: We welcome all students who have at a minimum completed 6th grade to apply. You can apply by emailing the camp director. Please include your name, grade and any previous volunteer or related experience in an email sent to safetytown@newalbanypolice.org.

At the end of each year we have teachers, officers, firefighters and office staff evaluate each volunteers’ performance. Those who perform well are invited back and are given first priority for placement.

All first time volunteers must have a letter of recommendation sent to the Safety Town Director at safetytown@newalbanypolice.org. The letter should come from a teacher, community leader or coach who interacts with the volunteer on a frequent basis and can speak to his/her abilities to interact as part of a team (classroom, band, sport, ballet, cheer etc), follow directions, maturity level and leadership abilities.
