Volunteer Opportunities

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!

There are 49 store locations in and around the Houston area; the proceeds from these stores help fund Goodwill’s employment and training programs.

Volunteers are always needed in the production and donation areas of our retail stores. Duties include receiving and sorting donations, processing and displaying merchandise, and representing Goodwill through customer service. We also have volunteer opportunities available through our Workforce Development 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.

Groups are limited to 5 individuals per shift Monday - Friday, and 5 on Saturday and Sunday. Please call Juliana Mazurkewicz, Volunteer Coordinator, at 713-699-6363 for more information about how we can accommodate your group.
