There are several ways you can use your time and talents to make an “impact that lasts” with Just Hope. If you are interested in any of the opportunities below, complete our volunteer application to get started.
Community Event Volunteer
Just Hope regularly participates in community events in the Middle Tennessee area. Our goal for these events is to raise awareness about Just Hope and our mission to economically empower people around the world, and engage people who share our belief that giving a hand up is better than giving a hand out. To accomplish this, we need friendly, outgoing volunteers to help setup, tear down, and staff the booth. This involves helping kids plant seeds to take home, accepting donations for t-shirts, telling people about Just Hope, and encouraging people to join our email list. Events typically take place on Saturdays at parks in Nashville and surrounding areas. Below are upcoming events. Please complete the volunteer application if you are available to help at an event.

Project Support Volunteer

Opportunities vary, but may include writing letters to students in Panama to help them practice their English, or preparing materials for farmers in Sierra Leone. We also have tasks like preparing mailings and folding shirts, as well as a few events each year that require administrative support, such as staffing a registration table and arranging furniture. If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please complete the volunteer application. We will then notify you about project support volunteer opportunities.

Just Hope Hero
The projects we do would not be possible without the financial support of generous people. We need volunteers to spread the message of Just Hope and raise funds for projects. We provide everything you need to share Just Hope with your friends and family. Click here to learn more about this opportunity to volunteer your time and energy to help us fund projects.
Our leadership team regularly visits all of our project sites in the field to build relationships, track progress, address challenges, and identify new opportunities. We invite a few volunteers to join us on these trips, based on current needs and volunteer skills and experience. It is an opportunity for the volunteer to see Just Hope projects up close, contribute to project goals, experience different cultures, and gain a new perspective. Volunteers are responsible for covering their travel expenses. If you are interested in being an international volunteer, please complete the travel application. We will then notify you about upcoming trips, and you can let us know if you wish to be considered for the opportunity. Please note, these are not mission trips, and we cannot accept all volunteers. All international volunteers must complete a background check and interview process.
