Volunteer Opportunities

Last year, Goodwill served more than 13,000 people in our community resource centers. With your help, Goodwill can change even more lives this year. People in our community need to learn computer skills, resume writing skills and interviewing skills in order to get a job and become self-sufficient. Whether you volunteer in our community resource centers or in our stores, you help put people back to work. Please review the list of opportunities below to learn how you can help.
