Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with HopeWorks

Volunteering at HopeWorks isn’t just a way to get service hours or check a box – our volunteers directly impact the lives of our students and further our mission of providing second chances. We are always looking for people who are willing to invest their time and energy in our students. If that sounds like you, keep reading to learn more about our volunteer program and how to start the application process.

Daily lunch servers

All HopeWorks students and staff members share daily meals together. These lunches are a wonderful time of fellowship, and volunteering as a lunch server is an excellent way to serve our organization and your neighbors. Typically, individuals and/or church groups will take one day per month or quarter to serve lunch for our students. We encourage lunch providers to stay, eat and engage with our students after serving the meal.

Commodities and supplies providers

Numerous Memphis agencies and organizations recommend HopeWorks to those in need, which makes this a great opportunity to volunteer your time and resources. To meet the needs of our students, we need to collect and organize various supplies. As a commodities and supplies volunteer, we ask that you bring supplies to donate and give of your time to help organize recent donations.
