FOR VOLUNTEERS

Be a part of our community at work

Due to COVID limitations, we are currently unable to accept new volunteers. Please check back this summer as we plan our return to campus and on-site programming.

Join Our Community

Among the most valuable forms of giving are time and treasure. From donating business attire to talking us up on social media to hands-on helping our participants, we are immensely grateful for every volunteer whose generosity furthers our mission. Here’s how you can support.

From mock interviewers to event hosts, we have a host of individual volunteer opportunities that can match your gifts with our mission’s needs.

FIRMS

Corporations come to Cara to find community. Teams of five or 50 can engage in a day of team building and community service.

GROUPS

Deepen your connection to the mission through service and deepen your network through our giving circles, affinity groups, and mission evangelists.
