Volunteer Opportunities

Direct Training

Networking Interviews – Each of our participants research various potential careers.  During that phase, they are asked to conduct a short phone interview with someone who is currently working in that same field.  If you would be willing to share your insights and answer a few questions, (15-30 minute phone interview) please contact us and we will add you to our pool!

Mock Interviewing – Human Resource professionals that could help do mock interviews and give feedback to participants.

Sewing Work Days

If you are an experienced sewer and would like to help us create beautiful, one-of-a-kind products out of upcycled materials – we would love your help!  We need people who can cut, sew liners and sew on buttons. If interested, contact Jen McOwen at volunteer@churchcommunityservices.org or 574.523.1551 x112.

Volunteer Work Times

Join us at one of our volunteer work days or evenings and help us package soup, cookie, and dip mixes for the Soup Of Success program to sell.   

Check our calendar for specifics. These opportunities are open to the public.  Contact Jen McOwen if interested at volunteer@churchcommunityservices.org or 574.523.1551 x112 if you would like to join an existing volunteer work time or if you wish to set up a volunteer work time with a group of your own.

Graduate/Reunion Nights

Childcare: Help the childcare team watch Soup Of Success women’s children at quarterly reunion nights   Contact us for scheduling and directions.

Meal Providers: Provide a meal for a reunion night or graduation (approximately 100 people).

Tutor

If a woman enters the Soup Of Success program without a high school diploma or equivalency, she is required to enter into HSE classes.  This can be an intimidating feat for some and a little extra help getting through the tough spots can make all the difference. Tutoring can be done anywhere at your mutual convenience.
