Thank you for your interest in volunteering with OutReach! Volunteers are an integral part of OutReach’s success; without passionate and dedicated people like you, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Volunteers can assist in many different aspects of OutReach planning, programming, and implementation of services to our clients. Volunteers can also help out with our fundraising events (i.e - annual Garden Party or Awards Banquet) or are needed with tabling events throughout the year (i.e. - various summer festivals or volunteer fairs.)
