Beyond Jobs

As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to work with men 22-35 as they become leaders in their workplace, community and families. Job & Leadership Training (JLT) has a variety of opportunities for volunteers. Revive Thrift Shop also offers volunteer opportunities.

MENTORS

This role entails helping students learn to become leaders in their workplaces, families and communities. You will meet with your student once a week (any day) for eight weeks to help them set and achieve goals focused on employment, education, family, community improvement and personal development.

meal prep

On Monday and Thursday evenings we provide dinner for the students. The meals offer a time for community building as students and volunteers develop relationships over a nice meal. We need volunteers willing to either cook a meal, purchase food from a local restaurant or to provide money for the cost of a meal.

Revive Thrift Shop shatters your idea of “thrift” by offering a curated mix of new and used goods, including

Merchandise donated from NY and LA design houses. All profits support Mission: St. Louis. It also serves as a training center for both retail skills and furniture restoration. As you might guess, there is a lot of work that goes

Into ensuring that this social enterprise runs smoothly, and we couldn’t do it without our wonderful volunteers! We are currently looking for volunteer to sort donations, run the front register and staff the front of the store. For more information, email contact@revivethrift.org or visit their website at revivethrift.org.
