Individual Volunteering Opportunities

Alexandra House has a team of dedicated volunteers working in virtually every program. 

  • For prospective volunteers interested in working directly with clients as advocates or childcare providers, we offer a 50-hour training program that prepares individuals for the challenges of direct-service volunteering. 
  • For prospective volunteers interested in working behind the scenes in our kitchen or facility, we provide a quick orientation that allows volunteers to make a difference without extensive training. 

All individual volunteer opportunities require a completed volunteer application and a personal interview. For more information, please contact our Community Education Coordinator at 763-795-5458.
