Paul’s Place relies on volunteers to offer a wide variety of high-quality programs. Volunteers assist with many of our programs including Hot Lunch, Clothing Bank, our Programs for Children, GED classes, Nurse’s Clinic, and Holiday Programs. Volunteers also provide essential support for our fundraising initiatives.

Paul’s Place can accommodate children as young as 6 and groups up to 18 persons. Pre-registration required.

Special Volunteer Opportunities

Paul’s Place seeks volunteer Mentors for our week-day after-school programs for children in grades 1- 12. Mentors build relationships with our children through homework help, educational games and general conversation. Volunteers must commit to one hour, one day per week, pass a background check, and be comfortable working with children.

Paul’s Place uses volunteer RN’s to run our Nurse’s Clinic when the UM School of Nursing students are not in session.  Nurses need to be licensed in MD and we prefer personal liability insurance. Volunteering involves Wednesdays from 10:30-1:30 and ideally, volunteers commit to several Wednesdays in the year (May-Aug and/or Dec-Feb).

Paul’s Place supports the teachers of our GED classes by providing tutors.  Tutors give 3 hours once a week (either Tuesday or Thursday morning or afternoon). Volunteers must be comfortable with basic subjects and with working one on one with our guests. Sessions run about 6 weeks at a time throughout the year.

To become a Mentor, Tutor, or Volunteer RN, please contact Jayna Powell (410-625-0775).
