We are fortunate to experience the generosity and graciousness of Missoulians on a daily basis through our volunteer program! We always have changing needs, so please click below to find out more about the most updated opportunities.

Volunteer Opportunities

Community Center

Help staff our busy Community Center at 939 Stephens Ave!

Specific needs: office organizer; administrative task manager; donation deliveries; transportation for clients between programs, appointments, etc; client support with paperwork and forms to access programs; purchasing of hygiene items; assisting with walk-in requests; sorting donations; answering phones.

Must commit to 2+ hours a week.

Tutors and Mentors

Soft Landing Missoula provides a range of tutoring and mentorship opportunities for refugees and immigrants, ranging from elementary-aged through college-aged students and also including adults working on specific skills or goals.

Specific volunteer opportunities: after-school homework support and youth program tutor; college level academic support; driver’s education and citizenship tutor; English conversation partner; certification and subject-specific tutor; mentor; tech assistance.

Tutors work in-person one-on-one or in small groups depending on the need. They must be able to commit to a regular schedule.

United We Eat

Looking for people interested in cooking with refugee and immigrant chefs in a commercial kitchen to support our take home dinner program and other food based opportunities. Shifts are Mondays and Tuesdays during the day to early evening.

Currently filled, new volunteers can be put on a waitlist.

Childcare

Come play with refugee kids ages 0-12 while their parents study English. We provide on-site childcare for moms and dads taking an English class at the Council Groves community center. Classes are Wednesday nights from 6-7:30pm. Volunteers commit to at least twice a month.

New volunteers needed for the fall!

Vehicle and Automobile Support

Be available for assessment and advice when a refugee or immigrant community member is having car trouble. Provide support navigating the purchase process when someone is trying to buy a car.

Transportation Assistance

Help us reduce transportation-related access barriers for refugee and immigrant families! Many families don’t have their drivers licenses or vehicles of their own, and while they often use the bus system, it’s not always the most convenient. Volunteers will drive kids to-and-from tutoring or other youth program activities; provide transportation to families going to special events; and be on a call list should clients need more time-sensitive support such as traveling to a doctor or job interview and dropping off large items at their homes.
