VOLUNTEER

Whether you’re an individual or part of a church group, scout troop or corporate team, there’s a place for you in our volunteer program for a day or on an ongoing basis.

GRACE offers many types of volunteer opportunities for individuals ages 16+ that can fit into anyone’s schedule. Our volunteers can get started with a simple 2-step process!

Continue reading below for more information on the types of volunteer opportunities we typically have available. For questions or more details, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator directly at volunteer@GRACEGrapevine.org.

HOW TO VOLUNTEER

GENERAL VOLUNTEERS

All new GRACE volunteers must submit an application prior to working with GRACE. Applications are available below for download. Please note, volunteers under the age of 18 will need parental permission. Volunteers under the age of 16 will have to volunteer with a parent or guardian. Applications may be submitted in person, or emailed to Volunteer@GRACEGrapevine.org.

Once your application has been reviewed, you will receive a GRACE Volunteer Packet! Shift signups will be emailed to new volunteers once they have reviewed these documents.

We are no longer requiring a Volunteer Orientation. Rather, we are now offering ‘Discover GRACE’—here, volunteers will receive an overview of the history of GRACE, our programs, and all opportunities available. Following the presentation, we will take of tour of GRACE Main, which includes our Community Garden, Food Pantry, Clinic, Administrative building, and Client Services!

Those seeking complete court-appointed hours (CSR) must submit an application and a copy of their court forms prior to working with GRACE. Applications are available below for download.

Applications and court forms may be submitted in person, or emailed to Volunteer@GRACEGrapevine.org.

We are no longer requiring Volunteer Orientation for CSR Volunteers. Once your application and court forms have been reviewed, you will receive a GRACE Volunteer Packet! Shift signups will be emailed to new CSR Volunteers once they have reviewed these documents.

Please note: Due to the nature of the work we do here at GRACE, we cannot provide CSR opportunities to persons with theft, burglary or fraud, violence or assault charges, or charges related to these.
