Stockton Student Volunteer and Educational Partnership Program

Volunteers are a vital part of our day-to-day operation. We couldn't help as many people as we do every day without volunteers. Our Educational Partnership program is also a great way to enhance your educational and academic experience through practical applications in your course of study.

How To Volunteer

There are many ways Stockton students can make a difference. The only requirement is to have a passion for the poor and homeless and the desire to make a difference. Compassionate care is an ever evolving and changing world—a world that thrives on new ways of looking at old problems.  We hope you will consider lending your voice to the people who need it most–the poor, and the homeless.

Here are just a few ways you can help.

• Start a clothing drive, or collect coins. It only takes $2.72 to feed a homeless person.

• Sponsor a walk or a run. Raise awareness and much needed financial support

• Volunteer – we need help in the kitchen, warehouse or Mission farm

• Join our Street Team and be a community relations ambassador and help to educate and overcome common misperceptions by participating in a Mission sponsored community event or as an outreach assistance. It's perfect for general service hours or marketing and business track students.

As part of a class or research paper you could:

• Assist Street Outreach     

• Shadow a chaplain or caseworker

• Test a new theory in occupational art or music therapy

• Help us expand our career training and GED programs

• Write a grant that would help fund new ideas in compassionate care for the poor.

Ultimately it takes fresh ideas to change social perceptions of the impoverished, and provide real help for the people who need it.  Think you’re ready?
