The Volunteer Opportunities Project is available to St. Louis and St. Louis County residents who are at least 18 years old. Participants develop their work skills by volunteering at local businesses and agencies.
Participants have an on-site coach to help them learn how to do the work, improve their communication skills and be a good employee. Participants also learn how to search for jobs, complete a job application and participate in a job interview. Some participants may qualify for transportation while they receive individual training to find their own source of transportation to get to work.
Paraquad provides support to participants in the Volunteer Opportunities Project when they are ready and willing to find paid employment.
