Volunteer with us!
"The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention."
With over 2,000 Missoula youth participating in Flagship every year the gift of time given by volunteers in our community is what keeps Flagship afloat!
The Flagship Program recruits volunteers to lead or assist in after school and summer activities. To be a volunteer with Flagship means to commit to spending one day a week, more if you are able, after school from 3-5:30 pm working with students in a school setting. Volunteering with Flagship is a wonderful opportunity to be a positive adult mentor to youth in our community.
