School Group Volunteer Opportunities
Project HOME’s Service Learning Program encourages school communities to embrace our mission by partnering with us to create opportunities for education on homelessness and poverty in curricular and non-curricular ways and through ongoing commitment to relationships with our residents and participants.
Through the Service Learning Program, students spend time discovering some of the root causes of homelessness and poverty and how Project HOME creates not only solutions to homelessness, but also finds ways of prevention. They engage in conversations and experiences around poverty, food insecurity, mass incarceration, Medicaid, and advocacy for these issues.
See below for examples of prior Service Learning Activities.
- Host a party for Project HOME residents
- Prepare flower beds at Ray Homes community garden and Sanctuary Farm
- Serve lunch at Project HOME locations
- Help package non-perishable food items and toiletries
