Episcopal Charities currently has 516 individual volunteers placed at sites throughout the Diocese and 32 members of our Consultant Corps, a group of volunteers with specialized skills who contract with programs in need of individuals with experience and knowledge.
In addition to regular volunteer site placement, we:
hold an Annual Day of Service, where groups across the Diocese join together for a day of action, reflection, and community
host Advent Days of Service, during which volunteers assist our programs during one of their busiest times of year
gather together to discuss important social issues and their relationship to our communities through our Micah Series, and
train volunteers, site leaders, and consult with programs to provide quality experiences for all involved.
