Volunteer as an Individual

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, many of our main volunteer opportunities (like for our Resource Shelters and Seasonal Outreach programs) are paused.

We’ll keep this page updated as our needs and opportunities change. You can also follow us on Facebook or email volunteer@opentablenashville.org for more information. We also suggest looking at the volunteer opportunities at Hands On Nashville.

Volunteer as a Group

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, many of our main volunteer and educational opportunities are paused. You can read below about the group volunteer opportunities we’ve had in the past. We’ll update this page when we’re back to scheduling these events.

We are glad to connect with groups who want an opportunity to serve together. We’ve used groups to assist with move-ins, clean up campsites, organize storage, set up and serve dinner at our resource shelters, do laundry from shelters, and help with other “behind the scenes” work that is essential to keeping us running. We also offer group education opportunities through trainings and urban immersions.

Please note that we are unable to offer opportunities for groups that exceed 12 individuals at this time. However, Hands on Nashville provides a list of local agencies that accommodate larger groups. You can access that resource here.

To coordinate a volunteer group opportunity, please fill out this form. Submissions must be received at least one month prior to the proposed dates.
