VolunteerYou can make a real difference in the lives of homeless, low-income and otherwise disadvantaged individuals, who are willing, ready, and able to find employment and get on a pathway to self-sufficiency.

As a Chrysalis volunteer, you will play a part in helping more than 2,000 individuals secure employment this year!
Chrysalis volunteers are an integral component of our client services. They work directly with clients and contribute substantially to their progress and success throughout the program. Volunteers help support the Chrysalis program in many ways, including:
- Resume preparation
- Practice interviews
- Facilitating job search readiness classes
Due to the nature of our work and the instrumental role that volunteers play, it is especially important that our volunteers stand as exemplary models of professionalism and are able to truly commit the necessary time and energy to their assigned role. Before submitting an application, please consider the following volunteer requirements:
- Ability to commit a minimum of 2 hours per week, for at least 3 months
- Dependability, and consistent attendance with minimal absences
- Adherence to the Chrysalis policies, procedures, and processes
- Commitment to professional behavior including punctuality, business casual attire, and regular communication with the Volunteer & Program Coordinator and Chrysalis staff
In addition to these requirements, you must be over the age of 18 and able to volunteer during Chrysalis’ business hours (Monday–Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
