Enrich the Next Generation to Achieve Growth & Excellence

Volunteers are a valued and essential part of the functioning and development of Place of Hope. We are in consistent need of people who are willing to volunteer their time and skills in whatever area they can. Whether you are a mentor, a cook, athlete or a handyman, we invite and encourage you to utilize your God-given abilities to serve alongside us in this ministry. Many volunteers serve individually, as part of a small group and part of a large corporate team. Anyone can be a change maker right here in our community!

Opportunites

Mentoring

Our mentors work one-on-one with a child or young adult, twice a month, for at least one year. A background check is required.

 

Life-Skills/Independent Living Workshops

Volunteers teach an hour-long Life Skills Workshop or Independent Living Class to our high school, middle school and young adults at Place of Hope. There are 24 classes offered on each campus per year including finance, daily living, communication, self-care, work & study skills, career planning and more. The Life Skills Workshops for young adults take place the last Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. Independent living classes for middle and high school students take place on the 1st and 3rd Sundays every month at 6 p.m.

 

Meals

Meals are needed daily. You can prepare or purchase a meal to feed 8 to 10 people, and can commit to delivering a meal once a week, once a month or any day you are able to do so. We ask that you would arrange drop off to our front office (Mon to Fri 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) We will rotate the meals to our cottages.

 

Front Desk Assistant

Reoccurring Weekly

Volunteer Shifts: 9am-12pm; 12pm-3pm

Our front desk volunteers are the first-impressions team.  They answer phones, greet guests and receive donations.  We have remaining volunteer opportunities throughout the week.

 

Pressure Washing

Help our campuses be the best home for our kids possible.  We are in need of volunteers to pressure wash the sidewalks at each campus.  You can volunteer one time or on a reoccurring basis.
