Make a difference in someone’s life by serving in Mission Outpost. Volunteers must attend an orientation session before they can serve. During this orientation we will share safety protocols and describe the different areas where you can serve. Volunteer orientations take place on the first Tuesday of each month (no orientation in July) at 6:30 pm. Register here.

Volunteers who have completed orientation must sign up for a shift in advance. No walk-in volunteers will be accepted, due to COVID-19 precautions. If you are interested in serving with Mission Outpost, please email us at [email protected].
