Your time is your most precious commodity; where and how you invest it reflects your core beliefs. House of Bread is honored to be a recipient of your time.
Contact HOB Volunteer Coordinator Jordan Hertz at firstname.lastname@example.org to engage in any of these volunteer opportunities.
Bread and Relationship Formation
Partner with a student in our program through the bread baking process. No prior baking experienced required. You and a student will develop and or fine-tune baking skills during this 3.5 hour time commitment on either a Wednesday morning or Thursday afternoon over a 5-week period.
Mentoring: Resume and Job Skill Building
Mentor one of our students by pledging to meet with them 2-3 (or more if the Spirit moves you) times throughout the 6-week program. Set your own volunteer hours to work with students on job search and interview skills through a supportive and encouraging relationship.
Partner with students to sell our bread at bread stands and farmers’ markets throughout the Roanoke Valley and help us make the House of Bread brand a powerful tool for raising awareness of the challenges and needs faced by women seeking a new start within our community. Volunteers are needed on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings for 2-3 hour shifts.
Serve as a mock interviewer during our Job Interview Training Clinic at the end of each 6-week program to prepare our students for the questions they will face from potential employers as they re-enter the working world.
