Get Started

A core base of more than 250 active volunteers enables St. Mark Youth Enrichment staff to plan and facilitate programs and services for children and families. Dozens of volunteer opportunities are available. Join St. Mark Youth Enrichment to help give back to Dubuque’s greatest resource: children.

All our volunteers are equally essential to the success of our programs. There are various ways to make a difference that meet a wide variety of our volunteers’ schedules and interests.


Special Activity Volunteers bring a special activity or lesson to our students to enrich the regular program curriculum. For example, students enrolled in a Shakespeare class at Loras College brought 3 classic plays to life for our students. This type of service is ideal for groups, clubs, or businesses that are passionate about their field of interest and are ready to spend some time sharing it with our children. Contact information for Amanda Avenarius, Associate Director, to find out how you or your group can expand our students horizons at 563.582.6211 x105  or
