Here at Friendship Place, we have multiple jobs that can be filled by volunteers. With a small staff base, volunteers are needed and encouraged to help with the programs that we serve the community of Georgetown. Our longest running program, Georgetown Eats, a meal program where we serve meals Monday through Friday at 11am. Another volunteer opportunity would be to help with our job training program. We look for volunteers to help mentor our members of Georgetown Works. If you would like to volunteer at Friendship Place, please call 545-1115. We would love to get you plugged in!
Help with Job Training:
Here at Friendship Place, we have served the community for over 10 years with job training. Our most recent collaboration, the Georgetown Job Connection, we partner with other non profits to conduct an academic boot camp that provides the soft skills needed to get a job or get a better job. Volunteers are needed to be a mentor, guest speaker, and to monitor other activities that pertain to the job training program we have called Georgetown Works.
Help Serve During Lunch:
For over 15 years, Friendship Place has served meals to the community from our location at St Cyprian’s Church. We need volunteers Monday through Friday to help serve and plate our hot meals for our guests. From 10:30 – 12:30, our volunteers help set up, serve and clean up.
If you are interested, please call us and we will work you in.
Make Bag Lunches:
We can use volunteers to come in and make bags and/or the sandwiches at Friendship Place for the days we need them. Making the bags would entail setting up an assembly line and putting together the brown sack lunch that contains drink, chip/cracker, fruit, treat, etc. This can be done at any time as we have containers that we can store the bags at our facility. Contact us if you are interested in this.
