We believe that volunteering can be life-changing as well as life-giving. That’s why our program seeks to train and teach volunteers as they grow in understanding of the realities of generational poverty. Our goal is to match every volunteer with structured, meaningful opportunities to build relationships and make a difference.
After you fill out the initial interest form, our volunteer team will call you to find out more about your interests and background. You’ll come to Shepherd for a tour and brief training, then you’ll observe some of our programs in action. Once we’ve found a good fit for your schedule, skills, and passion, we’ll get some more information from you so we can do a quick background check. For most people and groups, the entire process only takes a few days from start to service.
If you’ve already been trained and are looking for opportunities to serve, log into Community Connect to see some of the many ways you can volunteer with us. Choose from what’s on the schedule, or contact us for other ideas. There are so many ways to plug in at Shepherd!
