Your Involvement

Back on My Feet recruits members from transitional housing and recovery facilities to build community through morning walks/runs with our teams of volunteers in the cities where we operate. As members move through their journey to employment and self-sufficiency, Back on My Feet volunteers and staff support them through our Workforce Development programming, which offers career coaching, professional development and skill building workshops, in addition to referrals to education and employment opportunities.

Learn more below about the different volunteer opportunities we offer.

Primary Volunteer Roles

Morning Circle-Up Volunteer

Are you a morning person? We need morning volunteers!
Come out early to run, jog or walk between one to four miles with our members 1-3 times a week.

Next Steps Volunteer Mentor

Do you have one hour a week to instill confidence, insight, encouragement and inspiration? Become a Next Steps Volunteer Mentor! Each mentor is matched with a member early in their Back on My Feet journey. They share their knowledge on interview skills, resume building and other workforce development opportunities to help the member achieve their individual employment goals.

Workshop Volunteer

Do you have the ability to create, present and lead engaging professional development workshops? Partner with us as a Workshop Facilitator! Deliver workshops that educate and empower members to apply learned skills to their unique lives.

Skill Specialist

Are you an expert in a field that could benefit our members? Join our community of skilled volunteers! Our members are capable of meaningful work, but they experience barriers other than homelessness and housing insecurity that impact their ability to get back on their feet, including criminal justice system involvement, credit issues, addiction, mental health support, among others.
