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.

If you’re interested in volunteering at CitySquare, the first step to getting involved is to attend a volunteer orientation or a tour. If you’re looking for a one-time or group volunteer opportunity, scroll down to view some of the additional ways to volunteer.

Thank you for joining us in the fight against poverty. We look forward to having you on our volunteer team! If you have questions, please email volunteer@CitySquare.org.

Family Impact Day

Gather your family and spend a Saturday giving back to the community! This event is dedicated to our youngest volunteers. Every quarter we invite your family to join us and learn about homelessness and poverty, as well as complete a service project. Volunteers under the age of 16 years old are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. The next Family Impact Day is Saturday, December 14, 2019. Please RSVP here.

Volunteer Groups

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.

Internships at CitySquare

If you’re interested in internship opportunities during the fall or spring semester, please visit www.citysquare.org/becomeamember to learn about opportunities to serve in the community through our AmeriCorps program.

What age 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.
