Volunteer Opportunities

Become an MWR event volunteer and join the team that inspires camaraderie in the workforce. As a volunteer you will be involved with a special group of people who set the standards for the Morale, Welfare and Recreation for Defense Distribution Center Susquehanna.

There are a total of ten events held throughout the year and one may tickle your fancy. Volunteer opportunities include basketball, tennis, racquetball, 5k run/walk events, golf tournaments, and special events.

As a MWR event volunteer you will assist in score-keeping, act as referee, be a cheerleader, setup, tear-down, and encourage all participants to have a good time and fully enjoy the event. 

Volunteers will receive a letter of appreciation after volunteering for an event in recognition for your support and efforts.

Thank you for your time. Become an MWR event volunteer!


The Child Development Center (CDC) has an “Open Door” policy, thus parents may come and visit at any time during operating hours.

Research shows parents who are actively involved in the care and education of their child(ren) have a direct, positive impact on their child’s educational success. We’re committed to maintaining a strong partnership with our parents and your participation is always welcome!

The CDC offers a variety of ways in which parents can become involved. If you don’t find anything on the list that interests you, see a member of management or your child’s teacher for additional suggestions.

  • Read a book to your child’s class or record books on tape.
  • Volunteer in the classroom. Note: please speak with the CDC Director about ways you may be involved in the classroom occasionally or on a regular basis. There are training requirements for this type of participation.
  • Help create a display or bulletin board.
  • Make home-made games for the children to use during rest time when they aren’t feeling sleepy.
  • Attend parent education activities.
  • Assist during special events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, Volunteer Appreciation, and other holiday activities.
  • Accompany your child’s class on a nature walk or visit to the installation’s fire station.
  • Share your occupation, hobby, or special talent with a group of children.
  • Join your child for lunch or snack and learn about “Family Style” dining in the center setting.
  • Become a part of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC), a group that meets periodically with the CDC Director and Child & Youth Program (CYP) Coordinator to discuss center updates, staffing changes, special events, etc.

If you would like to receive details on how to become a part of this important group, please contact CYP at the following:
