Volunteering at Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities offers many opportunities for volunteering. At Catholic Charities itself, you can volunteer by serving as a Board Member or as a member of a standing Committee. Catholic Charities' Board members are asked to serve for a specified term of office during which time they also participate on one or more Committees. The Board and Committees usually meet on a monthly basis, after office hours, at the office of Catholic Charities. These are the main Committees that may require volunteer participation:
- Membership Review
- Human Resources
Volunteering at Member Agencies
Catholic Charities' 29 member agencies offer countless opportunities for you to help others directly. This includes visiting or supporting families, children, the elderly, those with special needs, young mothers, or immigrants and refugees. In addition, volunteers with clerical and administrative skills are often needed to help with the work of the organization, and to serve as board members.
