About Volunteering & Student Opportunities

We are always seeking talented, motivated, caring people to join our volunteer teams.

We rely on the expertise and generosity of our 160+ volunteer counselors and team consultants to deliver high quality counseling to people with urgent needs, and 20+ volunteer receptionists to coordinate services during clinic hours.

The strength of our model is the passion volunteers have for the work and for the clients.

We need new volunteers on an ongoing basis to meet the ever-increasing demand for help.
