Volunteer opportunities at St. Joseph Services are as varied as those who volunteer. Projects can be done in groups, individually, one time or on an ongoing basis. Volunteers can choose to work with youth, adults, or both; they may choose to work at the SJS Program Site at Humboldt Park or the SJS Program Site at Austin. All volunteer opportunities require a compassionate heart, an openness to new experiences, and a commitment to share one’s gifts with another human being.
Submit the form below or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (773) 278-0484 for more information about how you can share your gifts and transform a life.
