Twin Cities R!SE relies on the tremendous dedication of our volunteers in every aspect of our operations – we could not function without them.

Our volunteers tell us that they love working with Twin Cities R!SE because they get to see the tangible impact of their work, whether they’re giving mock interviews, helping out at the front desk, or planning events.

Join us and make a profound difference in the lives of our participants while having fun and meeting others. We have a wide variety of opportunities and will work with you to find the perfect fit for your skills, interests and availability.

Here’s a sampling of our volunteer roles:

Mock interviewers:
Help participants practice their interviewing skills. This is a great setting to get to know participants, and mock interviews give participants the opportunity to practice answering questions, promote their job skills, and develop effective communication styles. 

In-class tutors:
Do you know about computers, writing, financial literacy, or job searching? Assist TCR instructors in the classroom and work one-on-one with participants who want a little extra help. Pick up a shift during our day or evening classes. 

Workshop presenters:

Share your knowledge on employment or skill building. Presenters create a 2 hour workshop that supports the Twin Cities R!SE curriculum. Previous topics have included Powerful Investments, Child Support, Managing Your Debt, and Secrets to Living Longer. 

In our office:
We need administrative volunteers for various projects like supporting special events and maintaining our databases.

Group Opportunities

We have fun, flexible group opportunities in classroom, as well as special opportunities for events and projects. Whether you’re looking for a one-time experience or an ongoing shift, we’ll work with you to find an opportunity that fits your group.
