DEAR POTENTIAL VOLUNTEERS,

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with Hopeprint! We are thrilled with the incredible amount of people who are desiring to invest in our community in this season. It is our hope that the enthusiasm and welcome that is being expressed is felt by our neighbors and friends who have been resettled as refugees.

Due to the high volume of interest, we for the first time in our history are not in need of program volunteers, but have the opportunity to have team members who fill in some important roles that we've dreamed about, but haven't made happen. Below is a listing of what is needed now. If you prefer to volunteer with programs, feel free to check back with us in April for a listing of summer volunteer needs and opportunities. 

Thank you for being a people and community that welcomes our brothers and sisters from around the world!

Nicole Watts, Executive Director, Hopeprint
