Join the Sun Foundation’s volunteer program to help the Sun Foundation’s bright ideas for children and education continue to shine! We need members of our community to give their talents and time to serve on the Sun Foundation board of directors, be active members of program committees, help at fundraising events, facility maintenance, assist with teaching, and provide medical care for students. These amazing people and groups are essential to the work of the organization. We need volunteers for the Sun Programs!
