Volunteering at Pathways

When volunteering with Pathways, you will have the opportunity to personally and directly impact our guests.

Below you will find the descriptions of our current volunteer needs.

*Volunteers under the age of 18 have to be supervised by an adult and Pathways does not allow Court Ordered Community Service.

Teaching Life Skills Classes

At Pathways we offer a variety of like skills classes. These classes provide support, education, and community. A few ideas of classes we have are yoga, bible study, financial literacy, computer skills, art, and self esteem classes. If you have a specific skill you would like to share or are interested in teaching a class please email [email protected]!

Special Group Projects

Pathways occasionally has a need for a group of volunteers to help brighten our facility. It might be painting a room, organizing in-kind donations, or cleaning up in and around the building. We don’t always have a need for groups, but if you’re interested, let us know and we’ll be sure to keep you in mind when the needs arise. Due to the small size of our spaces, we are unable to accommodate groups of more than 8 people.
