Are you passionate about helping people in difficult situations? Volunteers play an essential role to our programs and services and without the interest and dedication of individuals like you, we wouldn't be able to offer many of our services! Our volunteers are often the first ones to connect with our clients and they have a huge impact on them. We would love to have you join the Hope Clinic for Women (HCW) Volunteer Team! There are 15 unique volunteer roles that allow you to serve in an area you feel most passionate and while some involve interacting with our clients and others are more "behind the scenes," each one is crucial and makes a huge impact on the women and their families that we serve! We love hosting volunteer opportunities for families, small groups, classes, sports teams, organizations, and more! Contact Us to schedule a small or large group volunteering event.
Mentor or Coach
As a mentor or coach, you will meet directly with clients regularly to provide support, encouragement, and education through our Earn While You Learn (EWYL) program. EWYL is designed around the clients unique needs and areas of interest while allowing mentors/coaches and clients to work together to create and reach goals. Due to the nature of the position, we respectfully request that each mentor/coach be able to commit to 3 hours/week before applying and thank you for your understanding!
Our GED prep classes are led by a certified teacher. Volunteers will meet with students once weekly to help them prepare for their GED tests through one-on-one tutoring and short instruction. Classes are held on Wednesdays from 5pm to 8pm at 129 E Hawthorne St in our Education Building behind our clinic.
Represent Hope Clinic for Women at a local church, the community, and health fairs across Fallbrook and San Diego County.
