The Stop began as a volunteer-run organization in the 1970s, and to this day volunteers play a vital role in every facet of our operations. Without the dedication of our volunteers, we could not meet our goal of helping people stop the cycle of poverty.
Many of our volunteers have experience with issues facing the community: unemployment, poverty, and homelessness. The connection between volunteers and participants in our programs creates a unique sense of community marked by a non-judgmental and empathetic environment.
Volunteer Opportunities at 1884 Davenport
We are very fortunate to have many people interested in volunteering at The Stop, but this means that we get many more applications than we have positions. As such, we prioritize potential volunteers from the local community. There is a Volunteer Information Session once a month for the Drop-In and Food Bank positions at 1884 Davenport Rd. If you're interested, please email Jasmine at jasmine [at] thestop [dot] org to register for the next session.
Volunteer Opportunities at The Stop's Green Barn
There are currently no volunteer opportunities at The Stop's Green Barn. Thank you for your interest, and stay tuned for future postings!
Volunteer Opportunities at Events
We often have one-off fundraising or community events where we need a large number of volunteers for the day or half-day. If you would like to be on our events list, please email jasmine [at] thestop [dot] org and include some information about yourself, your availability, and any special skills or interests you have, e.g. cooking, customer service, serving, setting-up or taking down events.
