Childcare for Volunteers

Recognizing the importance of volunteers to the base community, the Air Force Aid Society provides funding for the Child Care for Volunteers program. The certificate of eligibility entitles the volunteer to receive up to 32 hours of child care (for each child) per month while participating in the Volunteer Resource Program at Tinker AFB. It is hoped that this funding will be used to support as many volunteers as possible who work at a variety of agencies throughout the base. This child care will be provided in licensed Family Child Care homes in the Tinker AFB area. For an updated list of licensed providers who participate in this program, come into the Tinker Airman & Family Readiness Center. It should be noted that this program is not meant to pay for child care for volunteers in resale (Thrift Shop), fund raising, or social activities.
