From holding a drive for much-needed supplies, to helping with fundraising events, to offering your valuable skills and knowledge to our youth, you too can become a part of our movement to help homeless young people prosper.

If you are a corporation or business looking for a unique volunteer experience please contact Robert Zindell, Events Manager, at development@covenanthousepa.org Or see more here


Are you part of a church, school, community service organization, or fraternity/sorority and interested in helping out as a group? 


Throughout the year we have a limited number of group projects available, like gardening, community clean-ups, holiday dinner serving, and gift-wrapping. When we don't have an immediate opportunity then see the list to the left with links to find out all the other ways you can support the youth of Covenant House Pennsylvania.


To see what opportunities are available for your group contact Celia Pretter, Volunteer Coordinator at cpretter@covenanthousepa.org

As a volunteer, you can enhance our programming and impact the lives of our youth by bringing your skills and talents to Covenant House Pennsylvania. 


Volunteer opportunities include conducting life-skills workshops, leading or supporting recreational and/or leisure activities, mentoring, and tutoring youth. We do have some very specific needs for our volunteers, but are also open to other ideas and opportunities. In addition, we need volunteers to support our major fundraising events throughout the year. Afterall, the best volunteers are advocates, donors and fundraisers too. 


Some basic requirements for volunteers are listed opposite. However, please contact contact Celia Pretter, Volunteer Coordinator, at cpretter@covenanthousepa.org to begin the process so that we can ensure that that we have an opportunity that is right for you.
