Please note that we ask our Individual Volunteers to make a regular commitment to the positions that they fill. Shifts are typically 3‐4 hours each. We do have opportunities in our kitchen, janitorial or Clothes Depot for individuals who can only volunteer on certain dates (please book in advance).
Computer Lab Volunteer: 1:30pm – 3:30pm (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
While volunteering at the computer lab, you are a part of the Support Staff, which is the entry point for most people coming into The Lighthouse. The computer lab is a crucial part of what we do, as guests depend on the computers as their lifeline to contact loved ones and potential employers. The computers draw guests to the Lighthouse and provides a good introduction to other programs at the Lighthouse. Our computer lab is completely volunteer run, and therefore it’s essential we have committed people so that guests can depend upon this service!
Game Night Volunteer: 6:30pm to 8:30pm (Wednesday)
This is a night to have fun with our Wii gaming system including DDR pads, play pingpong or card or board games. The more people the merrier!
Coffee House Volunteer : 6:30pm to 8:30pm (Friday)
While volunteering in the Coffee House, you will be part of a team made up of both staff and volunteers.

It is a low-key time where people can come and go, share experiences they are going through, and connect to services if needed.
