The ECCAC has a number of volunteer opportunities available. If you are interested in any of the opportunities below or have questions, please email or call (850) 833-9237 ext. 256.

Front Desk Volunteers

The ECCAC relies on volunteers to keep our front desk staffed at both of our Niceville and DeFuniak Springs centers. We currently have a great need for volunteers at both. Three hour shifts Monday-Friday are available at both centers. Additionally, front desk volunteers are needed from 5-7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our Niceville location.

Volunteers are the first person to greet visitors and clients that come into the centers and are responsible for watching children as their parents/caregivers are meeting with staff, baking cookies and answering phones plus much more. Interested volunteers must be fingerprinted and take a short class before working a shift. Upcoming classes are scheduled for:
