Be a Volunteer Tutor
We need tutors in basic reading, writing and math to work with students in our Career Track Learning Program. On-staff teachers will orient and assist, provide curriculum and answer any questions. Involves a 12 week commitment of the same hour each week (Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm).
How to get started: Contact Jason Dexter, our Learning Program Director, at (215) 438-3094 x 108, or firstname.lastname@example.org
Help out in our Thrift Shop
Spend a few hours working side by side with men in the New Life Program. We are always in need of individuals or small groups of up to 10 people at a time to help us process donations of used clothing and other items for our stores in our sorting room in Germantown at 101 E. Chelten Avenue six days a week (Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm).
How to get started: To arrange to come as an individual, call the Heather at (215) 438-3094. ext. 103. To schedule your group, please call Bob Emberger at (215) 438-3094, ext. 102.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Ideas for volunteer groups can include some of the following. For more information and to schedule a project, please call Bob Emberger at (215) 438-3094, ext. 102.
- Make homemade holiday or seasonal decorations and hang them up in our dining hall and chapel (for Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, summer, or Thanksgiving). This is a great project for groups with small children – you can make the decorations at home and bring them to hang up at the Mission (this is what the kids in the video above are doing).
- Make homemade snacks like cookies, brownies or cupcakes at home and schedule to drop them off at the Mission as a special treat for the men. Some families schedule to join us for dinner and the children serve the homemade desserts they brought.
- For older, more skilled groups, inquire about facility painting projects – with 55 men living, sleeping and working here every day, we’re always in need of a fresh coat of paint somewhere!
- Have another idea? Call Executive Director Bob Emberger at (215) 438-3094 x 102 to discuss how you can help us share God’s love with the homeless men who come to the Mission for help.
