Special Volunteer Opportunities

Paul’s Place seeks 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. Mentors are needed Monday through Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Contact Nicole at 

Paul’s Place seeks Volunteer RNs for our weekly Nurse’s Clinic when the UM School of Nursing students are not in session (May- August and December- February). RNs offer basic health screenings; medical case management; referrals for medical, substance use, and mental health services; and assistance navigating insurance and health care systems. Nurses must have a license in Maryland and CPR training. We prefer, but do not require, personal liability insurance. Volunteers are needed on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; we ask nurses to commit to volunteering at least six times in a year. Contact Kelly at
