Thanks To Our Rockets Volunteer Program Sponsor:

Thank You For Your Interest in Volunteering with Us!

Volunteers play an integral role in making our mission possible.

Every year, hundreds of volunteers generously donate their time to work alongside with our spirited trainees, plan our fabulous special fundraisers, or assist our instructors in the classrooms.

We would not have been able to provide as many job opportunities to our trainees without the help of our wonderful and dedicated volunteers.

Volunteering with The H.E.A.R.T. Program is a rewarding experience, and we are always in need of compassionate, enthusiastic volunteers!

Please scroll down to learn more about our different volunteer opportunities.

If you have any questions or special project ideas that you want to partner with us, please contact our Volunteer Manager at volunteer@heartprogram.org or 713-692-4278.
