About Volunteering

One Time Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in volunteering at Suits to Careers, Inc? Our organization has a wide variety of needs for volunteer support. We need volunteers who are available weekly or bi-weekly as well as individuals and groups willing to provide support for events that occur 1-3 times a year.

Every couple of months, our organization has an event or needs help with a one or two day project. These may be during regular work hours, or afterhours. Usually, volunteers are called upon for manual labor.

For these events, a request for volunteers will be sent out on social media and included in an e-newsletter or e-blast. Volunteers do not need to fill out our questionnaire, nor attend training prior to helping out, however, we do encourage both.

Examples include setting up a pop up store for Clothing Sales, inventory counting, transporting boxes or bins, etc. Volunteer shifts can range 3-6 hours long.

How to Sign Up to Volunteer

Individuals interested in ongoing volunteer opportunities must fill out our Volunteer Questionnaire Application.

Project details will depend upon the size of the group and the amount of time the group would like to invest.
