Volunteer

Our Evening Shelter and Meal Group Volunteer positions are currently on pause due to COVID-19. Please contact Amanda and Meg with any questions about the roles.

Volunteers founded our organization and remain an integral part of St. Stephen's. We adapt our volunteer roles to meet the changing needs of our programs and program participants.

Internships

Interns are involved in nearly every department throughout the organization. When internship opportunities are available, they are posted on this page. Many internships can be completed for school credit. Internships are generally planned and confirmed at least 6-8 weeks in advance of a semester beginning. For more information, contact Amanda at AHancer(at)ststephensmpls.org or 612-481-9501.

 

Our regular volunteer roles include the following:

Donation Drive Host

Organize and host a donation drive with your colleagues, family, friends, classmates, or faith group to help put together ‘Welcome Home Baskets’ for our community members moving out of shelter and into their new homes! All you have to do is pick a theme (i.e. kitchen supplies, bedding basics, hygiene and bathroom items, cleaning items, or school-readiness supplies) and pack a box or laundry basket with the corresponding items that will be gifted to families and individuals in our programs. Visit ststephensmpls.org/donate for a complete list on ongoing donation needs.

Shelter Meal Group Coordinator

Plan, purchase, prepare, and serve a meal for 50-55 people at our Clinton Avenue Shelter or First Covenant Church Shelter. Meal Groups are encouraged to eat alongside guests, contribute to a hospitable environment, and help with meal clean-up.
