Each volunteer is required to participate in an educational orientation to better acquaint themselves with the complex issues involved in homelessness in Atlanta, as well as understand Gateway’s role in addressing those issues. To register for an upcoming volunteer orientation, please follow the above link to fill our our Volunteer Registration Form. (More information is available on the form.)
We work with each group’s schedule to find a convenient time. However, our volunteer calendar fills up fast (particularly during the holidays and summer season), so we recommend that you schedule your group volunteer project with Gateway months in advance.
It is important to us that all volunteers have a positive and rewarding experience at the Gateway Center, so we offer various volunteer activities and programs for every type of group and individual.
Some individual and group volunteer opportunities include:
- Helping to prepare and serve meals
- Light housekeeping
- Chapel services
- Sorting in-kind donations
- Supervising the computer lab
- Job Training and Interview Training
- Client Engagement Assistance
- Special donation drives (Coats, Packaged Food Drives, Towels, etc.)
- GED tutoring for adult clients
