The Volunteer Program of Goodwill Industries of the Valleys seeks to engage a diverse group of volunteers to help people in the community as they seek to achieve a better life through work and independence.


Volunteer Opportunities at Goodwill


  • Becoming a mentor is one of the most important things you can do for today’s youth. Through your guidance and support, you can empower teens to make positive decisions. Help youth stay in school, excel in their classes, or make plans for their future careers.

Job Search Assistance

  • Goodwill’s Workforce Centers provide job search help to the public. Assist job seekers with tasks, such as creating cover letters and resumes, finding job listings online, completing online applications, and preparing for interviews.

Donation Drives

  • Donation drives are a great way for corporations, schools, churches, and community organizations to give back to the community while clearing out the clutter. We’ll help you organize and market your event and then pick up the donations at the end!

Special Events

  • Help out with special events throughout the year, including summer and holiday parties for our adult participants with disabilities, and a variety of community outreach events.

Skill-Strengthening Activities with Adults with Disabilities

  • Goodwill’s Day Support Services provide peer interaction and opportunities for community and social integration. Volunteers assist with activities that teach life skills, accompany groups on community outings, and help with birthday and holiday parties!

Growing Goodwill Community Garden

  • Goodwill’s community garden provides a place for local families to grow their own food. Individuals and groups are needed throughout the growing and harvesting season to help maintain the garden and assist with special projects.

Reality Check

  • Assist young adults during this real life simulation activity at local schools. Students are given “paychecks,” and must then learn how to use their money wisely at a variety of life stations where volunteers assist students with their decisions.

Make a difference in the community . . . Volunteer with Goodwill today!
