Volunteer Opportunities

Without our dedicated team of volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to offer the programs and activities participants have come to count on.

From facilitating craft activities such as beading and quilting to teaching ESL to prepping and serving meals, our tireless volunteers help ensure that every woman who comes to Sistering feels welcome and valued.
