Time is one of the most valuable commodities people have. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with your time and skills! With many unique programs, there are lots of ways you can support the fight against poverty.
We have an increased need for volunteers!
If you're an existing volunteer, please email us to learn more about the opportunities we currently have. We are also welcoming new and returning volunteers - see our Virtual Volunteer Orientations below and register today.
Volunteers are critical to the success of our work at CitySquare. Please know that during this Coronavirus pandemic we’re focused on maintaining the health of our neighbors, volunteers, and staff, while also meeting an increased demand for our services due to the current economic disruption. We’re taking additional precautionary hygiene measures and contingencies are in place to minimize exposure risk for volunteers as you continue to help us provide services to neighbors. We’re also taking extra measures in the cleaning and sanitization of our facility.
We’ll continue to monitor the evolving news, and until we are instructed to do otherwise by local health officials, CitySquare remains open.
We are in critical need of funds to aid in our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you're able, please donate to our Emergency Relief Fund.

Thank you for joining us in the fight against poverty. We look forward to having you on our volunteer team soon! If you have questions, please email volunteer@CitySquare.org.
We love groups at CitySquare! There are many ways to volunteer, from serving and eating a meal with our neighbors, to packaging laundry or snack kits, and much more. We also invite your team to better understand what it is like to live in poverty through our interactive Poverty Simulation game. If you’re interested in learning more or are ready to find a volunteer opportunity for a group, please complete a group volunteer application.
Matching Gift and Volunteer Grants
Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax-deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Check with your HR department to see if your company offers these programs.
How old do I need to be to volunteer at CitySquare?
We welcome and appreciate volunteers of all ages; however, please note that volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied and actively supervised by a parent or legal guardian. For Food Pantry Prep days, the minimum volunteer age is 12. We welcome your whole family, including younger volunteers, at our quarterly Family Impact Days.
