Why Volunteer with CommonBond?

We believe a home is the foundation for everything in life. At CommonBond housing is paired with supportive services that provide youth academic and enrichment programs, job assistance, health and wellness services, and community engagement opportunities for adults and seniors. This leads to youth who excel in school, adults who find employment and advance in their jobs, and older adults who live independently longer.

Our work is done in partnership with local community, governmental, corporate, and philanthropic sectors but one of our most important partnerships is with our volunteers. In 2020 we engaged 245 volunteers through both in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities, allowing us to increase our support for residents during a challenging year.

Work With Youth

Now more than ever youth need that one-on-one academic and social emotional support that a tutor and mentor can provide. At CommonBond we work with K-12 grade youth in various afterschool programs to do just that. Our Youth Programs could not run without the dedication of our amazing volunteers.
