Make a difference as a Fresh Start volunteer.

Impact lives—both yours and theirs.

Fresh Start volunteers inspire the entire Fresh Start team with their commitment and dedication to improving the lives of Arizona’s women. We are always looking for passionate, engaged community members who want to donate their time, skills, and talents to helping the women we serve grow.

At Fresh Start, we train our volunteers to believe in our clients and their dreams; to treat everyone with respect; and to model professional relationships. Your compassion and commitment will transform women’s lives as they become self-sufficient and move from surviving to thriving.

Three ways to support as a volunteer:

1) Group Volunteer Opportunities

Have a group of colleagues or friends looking to support the Fresh Start mission? We have a few different ways for groups of 3 to 30 to get involved!

  • Client Facing Events and Celebrations
  • Fundraising Events
  • Scholarship Interview Support
  • Resume and Interview Prep Events

2) INDIVIDUAL Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in sharing your time and talent to support women on their journey to self-sufficiency? We would love to know what areas you hold expertise in and are most passionate about when it comes to supporting our community.

When opportunities arise such as in keynote speaking, mentor panels, content creation, and more we will reach out based on the provided information and areas you list.

This is an as-needed opportunity and does not hold a promise of open and steady volunteer roles.

3) internships

Internships at Fresh Start are a great way to gain real-world experience and college credit in a fun and inclusive work environment.

We have internships in the below areas depending on the time of year.

  • Social Work
  • Event Planning and Fundraising
  • Client Services and Community Engagement
  • IT and Computer Literacy

NOTE: Internships are currently closed until Fall of 2024
