Summer Volunteer Opportunities

Project based: We often have administrative projects that require 2-3 hours to complete a task.  This is a 2x monthly commitment. If you enjoy and have skills surrounding organization and administration – this is just right for you.  Computer skills are helpful, but, not necessary.

Resumé assistance.  We have community members that are in need of Resumé formatting.  If you are a proficient at editing, and word-smithing – this could be a great way to use your skills

If any of these volunteer positions are interesting to you or someone you may know, please contact:

Your gift today to ResourceWest has the power to change lives.

Take Amanda, for example. She is a single mother of two young children and taking care of her brother’s two children. She was unemployed for the longest time before she finally landed a good job. One week after starting the job, her car broke down. Living in Minnetonka, she was too far from the bus route to be able to get to work in Minneapolis.


Amanda was scared when she came to ResourceWest. She knew if she missed work, she would lose her job. She was already behind on the rent, and she was afraid she and the four children would become homeless. Our case workers were able to help Amanda get her car repaired. Amanda is still employed, her household is stable, and she is optimistic about her future.

As we start off 2017, I invite you help those, like Amanda, that are struggling in our community.

Your gift will help ResourceWest to provide in-depth case management to our many clients stuck in a crisis. Eighty-percent of these clients report greater empowerment, improved self-esteem, and a more stable household.
