We have volunteers from many of the Catholic Churches in the Columbus Deanery. Our volunteers range from youth ages 12 and up to retired couples – there are plenty of opportunities to get involved! No special training is needed to volunteer; we will work with you to find what role will be rewarding for you. Youth must review and sign our Youth Volunteer Guidelines before volunteering at Outreach. Most of our volunteers work one or two days Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to Noon. However, we have opportunities on afternoons, weekends and evenings – just let us know when you are available!
