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 3-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

1. SUBMIT APPLICATION

All new volunteers must submit an application prior to working with GRACE. This includes those seeking court-appointed hours (Community Service Requirement or CSR Volunteers).

2. ATTEND ORIENTATION

Next, unless you are an Eagle Scout or community group project volunteer, you will need to complete an orientation session prior to working with GRACE. Please note that our CSR (Community Service Requirement) volunteers seeking court-appointed hours will need to attend a CSR-specific session. During orientation, you will learn about the GRACE mission, all services and programs that GRACE provides to our clients, GRACE Resale and Donations, volunteer opportunities, and GRACE needs. We offer orientation sessions twice a month for all new volunteers. At present, all sessions are once again held in person.

3. WE'LL BE IN TOUCH

Finally, upon completion of your orientation and application, we will contact you with available opportunities that meet your schedule and skills.

OPPORTUNITIES & REQUIREMENTS

Standard New Volunteers

Most new individual volunteers need to begin by attending an orientation session and completing a volunteer application. Session dates and application link are available above.

Eagle Scouts / Projects

Volunteers for scout and community projects should begin by scheduling a brief planning meeting with a GRACE Staff Member. Most group projects do not require volunteer orientation completion.

CSR Volunteers
  • We have opportunities available for individuals who have court-appointed, attorney-appointed, or school-appointed community service.
  • If you are volunteering as part of Community Service Restitution (CSR) program, our community service orientation is MANDATORY before you can begin volunteering at GRACE.
  • CSR volunteers must bring their paperwork from the school or court to orientation, and they must be ready to commit to specific dates and times that they will volunteer.
  • CSR volunteers will be provided with a volunteer application during orientation.
  • 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. GRACE can now accept felony charges on a case-by-case basis, but we reserve the right to not accept some cases.
