Volunteer Opportunities


We are in the process of transitioning to an online volunteer application and check in system.  Please note, if you are required to complete hours for court or an attorney, you will need to call 713-699-6367.


Goodwill Houston Volunteer Portal


Through our volunteer program, we offer fun, hands-on opportunities to get involved and make a meaningful impact in the Houston community. Whether you are an individual interested in getting more involved in the community or a group looking to work together and make a difference, Goodwill Houston has an opportunity for you! Volunteers are always needed in the production and donation areas of our retail stores. Duties include assisting with donations, working in the production area, and representing Goodwill through Customer Service. We also have volunteer opportunities available through our Workforce Development programs.

There are 65 store locations in and around the Houston area; the proceeds from these stores help fund Goodwill’s employment and training programs.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to volunteer on their own. Volunteers between 12-15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will also need to apply.

Groups are limited to 5 individuals per shift. If you have a larger group, please call Juliana Maszurkewicz, Volunteer Coordinator, at 713-699-6363 for more information about how we can accommodate you.


 We welcome the following types of volunteers: 

  • Students, scouts, and other individual volunteers 
  • School clubs, private groups (NHS, etc.)
  • Workforce Solutions community service (please call for requirements)
  • High school job training/life skills groups (with a job coach)
