What Does It Mean To Be A Volunteer?

Epworth youth, from our residential facilities to our Drop-In Center and Food Pantry, love to learn from and grow with our invaluable volunteers. Our team of volunteers help to make a difference in the lives of literally thousands of St. Louis youth and families every year. Their unconditional commitment and service to our kids, teens, and families are amazing – and you can join them!

There’s something for everyone to do as a volunteer at Epworth! From mentoring our foster and residential youth through their healing journey to assisting with cooking classes and other life skills education at the Drop-In Center, we’ve got it all waiting for you. You can assist with fundraisers and special events, help with administrative paperwork, or enjoy the outdoors while helping with our landscaping. All volunteers who will be working directly with youth must be at least 21 years old and agree to be subject to a background check, at no cost to the volunteer.
