Monthly Orientation

We are thrilled you want to volunteer with Transition Projects!

The first step to becoming a volunteer at Transition Projects is to attend one of our monthly Volunteer Orientations. At this information session, you will learn more about Transition Projects and our current volunteer needs, as well as meet staff and tour our downtown facilities located in the Bud Clark Commons building (665 NW Hoyt St).

Orientation consists of a 90-minute general orientation about our organization and volunteer roles, followed by an optional 30 minute session about our meal provider program for volunteers interested in providing meals at a shelter. Potential meal providers should plan on attending the full two hours.

*Volunteer Eligibility: Volunteer applicants, whether for a temporary or recurring role, must not have received Transition Projects services (with the exception of mail) for the immediate 6 months prior to application. This policy does not apply to those enrolled in our Mentor Program. If you have questions about your eligibility to volunteer, please contact Emily Coleman (emily.coleman@tprojects.org).*
