Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers represent the spirit of philanthropy by generously investing time and resources in the lives of our newest neighbors in need. At ReWA, volunteers contribute significantly toward the achievement of our mission and goals.

Current Available Opportunities

Stay tuned for updates in July on future remote volunteer opportunities (6.15.20)

To apply, email your resume to volunteers@rewa.org, to start the process. For most positions, volunteers are placed one week after background checks and orientation has been completed.
