Volunteer

Those interested in volunteering, should contact Jenny Garcia, jgarcia@family-service.org, 210-299-2439, or Michael Odum, modum@family-service.org, at 210-299-2439.

Most of our ongoing opportunities for individuals require that you are at least 18 years of age to volunteer on your own because of our background check requirements.

We have office locations near downtown, and on the Northeast, Westside and Eastside of San Antonio. We also have over 31 Head Start and Early Head Start sites in various locations and services offered in schools throughout San Antonio. We will match you with the location that suits your needs and interests.

There is no set time commitment for many of our opportunities. For those that do require a certain commitment, it can range from 3-6 months. If your original placement is not a good fit, we are more than happy to talk about other options with you.

Yes, we can work with your availability, as we have a variety of volunteer schedules to offer. We have opportunities that have daytime, evening, or weekend hours.

You will need to submit the included volunteer application and background check online to get the process started.  Once we receive your application, we will process a background check and the references you list on your application. When the background check is complete, we will contact you for a phone interview once we’ve determined a placement. We will get you in contact with your site supervisor, where you will arrange your schedule, responsibilities, and tasks. We can typically contact you to get you started in about a week and a half.
