It takes a team of dedicated people to operate our programs every day and we are always looking for new members to join our family.
New Individual Volunteers
All new volunteers must first go through a new Volunteer Orientation. Please email email@example.com to schedule.
Sign up as an individual volunteer below to create an account and see current opportunities. Volunteer training is required for some opportunities, so registration for these shifts may first require approval. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out further information.
You can now control your own schedule! To sign up or cancel a volunteer shift, check how many hours you’ve volunteered, and see what you already signed up for, click Volunteer Sign Up.
If you are interested in scheduling a time for your company or group to volunteer together, please fill out our request form so we can find the right fit for you. Shifts on the registration page are not necessarily open for groups.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have additional questions about volunteering or do not see available opportunities that meet your schedule or interest, let us know!
What is the age limit to volunteer?
Volunteers must be at least 12 years old. Children ages 12-14 require supervision by a parent/guardian. All volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian signature on their release form.
Can students volunteer at A Gift For Teaching to fulfill community service hours?
Yes. Students looking to fulfill Bright Futures scholarship requirements or additional community service may volunteer. See above age limits.
My office/church/organization wants to volunteer for a day. How many of us can you accommodate?
We welcome large groups of 10 to 35 volunteers at one time for a scheduled project. Volunteers typically work in the workroom or warehouse sorting supplies, packing online orders, or counting and bundling supplies.
Are there low impact tasks for elderly or pregnant volunteers?
Yes, we have tasks that can be done sitting down. Please let us know ahead of time so we can make those accommodations.
After I arrive will I get clear directions on what to do?
Yes. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a staff member who will give you a brief tour and get you acquainted with the facility.
Is there a place I can take a break and put my personal belonging while I volunteer?
We have a Volunteer Work Room, where volunteers can place their belongings in lockers, store personal lunches and refreshments in the kitchen area, and take a break.
