Volunteer

We could not accomplish our mission without volunteers! God’s work is being accomplished because of the hands and feet of His workers. We need you and your skills/interests! Whether you have one hour a day, one hour a week, or one hour a month, we would love to connect you with a volunteer opportunity. If you are interested in volunteering, send an email to info@jimrileyoutreach.org requesting a volunteer application.

CURRENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

MENTORS

Each of our residents receive two mentors when they enter the program. The hope is that these mentors walk with them not only while they are in our program, but even more importantly after they transition to other things. This opportunity has a training component, and is our main reoccurring volunteer opportunity. We ask that mentors see their mentee in person at least once a month and have contact a minimum of 2 times per week (texts, phone calls).

ONE-ON-ONE TUTOR

With all of our residents pursuing some type of educational goal, we have a need for tutors in general/specific academic areas. We ask that tutors commit to meeting at least once a week with the residents they are tutoring.

SPECIAL EVENTS HELP

We greatly appreciate extra hands during special events, retreats, and fundraisers. We hold two fundraising events a year; one in the fall and one in the spring. Contact us for more details.

CLEANING CREW

While our residents have household responsibilities, extra attention to details (about every three months) makes a big difference in the cleanliness of the house and health of our residents. This is a great opportunity for groups.

DRIVING COACH

Many of our residents get their license while at one of our programs, and we are in need of individuals to assist them in completing their drive time. No formal training needed.

CHURCH RIDES

We are always looking to get our residents connected to local churches in the area and are in need of individuals or families that are willing to provide church transportation. Commitment would include picking the resident up each week, allowing them to sit with you/your family at church, and bringing them back home after the service. If you are interested in taking the resident to lunch occasionally after, that would be a special treat, but that is not expected.

SKILLED AREAS

As needs arise, we greatly value assistance in these skilled areas: photographer, videographer, handyman, marketing guru, or car mechanic.
