Local Opportunities to Serve

"Jobs for Life" Mentors

Restoring Hope Roanoke is partnering with the Roanoke Rescue Mission to offer Jobs for Life classes for 10 Rescue Mission residents this year. Currently, 10 men have been identified to participate. We are in need of male volunteers to serve as champions, or mentors, to walk alongside these students as they learn about God's design for work and their lives. Jobs for Life is a Biblically-based program that helps unemployed and underemployed individuals learn practical skills for work and life, such as interviewing and making resumes, but also focuses on the most important relationship in life - our relationship with God.
Training is provided for all champions. We will follow all recommended health protocols, including wearing masks at all times, and the class will be capped at 10 students.

Volunteers are needed on Thursday nights from 6 to 8 pm from January 21 until May 13th.

Anyone interested in volunteering can email [email protected]!
