Share your knowledge with a small business owner
Our professional skills can help small businesses grow and create jobs. Volunteer as a mentor on MicroMentor.org and make a meaningful connection with a business owner. Mentors join, search for entrepreneurs to assist online, and once connected, serve as a coach and trusted guide. This volunteer opportunity is extremely flexible. You set the schedule and the expectations with your mentee. Meanwhile, our support staff is by your side every step of the way to help you succeed as a mentor. Some entrepreneurs need a sounding board or general industry advice.

Hospice care needs volunteers!
Hospice care can dramatically reduce the amount of pain and suffering experienced by a patient and their loved ones. At St. Jacob Hospice, our close-knit group of caring professionals and trained volunteers are committed to providing our patients with a richer, fuller and more meaningful life in the time that is left to ensure a dignified, comfortable and peaceful experience. Helping the terminally ill through hospice is more about quality LIVING than dying. Volunteers in hospice find personal fulfillment in reaching out a helping hand for those in need.
