Long-term volunteer opportunities

Make a difference by using your time and talent at Sojourner Family Peace Center, contributing to our mission to transform lives impacted by family violence. We believe volunteers strengthen our agency as a whole and significantly expand our reach to the clients we serve.


We have several programs that depend on both long-term and short-term volunteer/intern commitments. Short-term or one-day-only volunteer opportunities are for people who would like to donate their time on a less continual basis.

We are currently working to place individuals who recently completed volunteer orientation into meaningful roles.

We are not accepting new volunteer applications at this time. Check back soon for future opportunities and the 2020 orientation schedule.

Sojourner does not offer court-ordered community service.
