Frequently Asked Volunteering Questions 

Can I create my own schedule?

Yes you can! We understand that you have a life and we want to respect that.  Just speak with our Volunteer Manager after orientation or once you are ready to start volunteering.

What if I can’t make it when I am scheduled to volunteer?

Not a problem, life happens! All we ask is that you give us a call at 651-430-2739 or send us an email at suzanne.lindquist@valleyoutreachmn.org and let us know.

Are there any age restrictions to volunteering at Valley Outreach?

We enjoy having volunteers of all ages at Valley Outreach! For volunteers under the age of 7, they are able to volunteer in the Snack Pack program and must be accompanied by adults (1 adult for every 2 youth). For volunteers between the ages of 7-14, we ask that they be accompanied by a parent/guardian while volunteering. And for volunteers ages 15-17 they are able to volunteer on their own with signature from a parent/guardian. See Youth Volunteer Guidelines for additional information.

Do I need to attend an orientation?

Yes, we ask that all volunteers attend a volunteer orientation. The orientations only last an hour and they provide incoming volunteers with a chance to familiarize themselves with Valley Outreach, our programs and volunteer opportunities as well as the Volunteer Program Manager really loves to meet new volunteers. There is an orientation schedule posted on the Volunteer Page of the website.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothes with close toed shoes (sandals are not allowed). We ask that our volunteers not wear any clothing that uses vulgar language, contains political statements or that is revealing.

Do you provide verification of service for school credit or community service hours? 

Yes, once you have completed your volunteer hours, we are happy to provide you with a letter of confirmation.

Are there weekend volunteer opportunities available?

Most of our regular volunteer opportunities take place during weekdays.

Can I volunteer with a group?

Absolutely! Just fill out our Group volunteer inquiry form.


Valley Outreach is a bridge between the crisis of the moment and the solution of the future. We help our St. Croix Valley neighbors in need of food, clothing, emergency financial assistance, and other support while respecting their individual dignity and offering them encouragement and hope.
