Becoming a Volunteer

The first step for all our volunteers is attending a Prospective Volunteer Introduction. The “PVI” is a brief overview of The City Mission and the volunteer opportunities we have available. It’s a great chance for you to meet our staff face-to-face, learn about the volunteer experience that is the best fit for you, and see how your commitment can impact the lives of men, women and children in crisis. Please click on “Sign Up for a PVI” to reserve your spot for one of the PVI dates below.
