Group Volunteers Projects

The process for Group Volunteering is different than the individual volunteer process.

For your group to qualify under our "group volunteering" policy, the group must be one of the following:

  • Employee Groups
  • Church Groups & Teams - groups which officially represent churches
  • Scout Groups
  • School Field Trips - school-sanctioned field trips for the purpose of volunteering
  • Civic Groups - Rotary, VFW, 4H, Fraternity/Sorority, etc.
  • Any groups that have an interest in conducting a Chapel service will have a two part orientation.

 If your group meets the above criteria, please read the specifics and sign up below.

Groups consisting of family or friends should sign up as individual volunteers and must complete the orientation and placement process as individual volunteers.

Age Limits & Chaperones for On-Site Volunteering projects

  • Age Limits - Youth must be age 16 or older (and serve alongside a chaperone) to be eligible to volunteer in the kitchen at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.
  • Age Limits - Youth under age 16 may volunteer on either of the Mission's Farms which operate May through August.
  • Group Chaperones - 1:8  One adult (over age 18) for every eight teens (age 16-17).

Groups With Younger Children

Groups with children under age 16 may not volunteer in the kitchen at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, but we may have some volunteer opportunites on-site for middle-school and high-school aged groups. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any inquiries. Groups with children younger than middle school may not volunteer on-site, but can volunteer from May through August at our farms.  We can suggest some creative ways that you can involve your group off-site such as organizing a collection drive. You can also have a representative from the Mission visit your group of younger children to talk about homelessness and how the Mission helps.  Please email the Volunteer Coordinator with information about your group and a project you'd like to do, or a date that you'd like to have a speaker visit your group.

Families With Young Children 

Unfortunately, we are not able to have young children volunteer on-site. Please join us in volunteering on one of our farms (in season) or check out Creative Ways to volunteer, or look through our information for parents.

**Group Volunteer  projects: One person from your group must attend a mandatory orientation/background check. Please bring name, address, phone and copy of a photo ID of each member of your group to orientation. Sign up for orientation is your first step by emailing
