Student Volunteers

So you’d like to make a difference in the world….

Students and young adults possess a huge capacity to give and to really make a difference in the world. We see it everyday at Shepherd’s Table. Folks come for a variety of reasons: some out of a requirement, some simply because their heart is urging them to share their gifts and talents with others. All are welcome here!

Shepherd’s Table is delighted to have students and young adults who choose to complete required service hours with us. We also often have youth who do required service hours for a religious requirement such as Confirmation (students must be at least 14 years old). Boy Scouts and Girl Scout also seek us out to complete a service requirement such as the Eagle Scout Award. We welcome youth and young adults to join us in our mission. We simply ask for a willing and open heart, a generous spirit and advanced planning.

If students wait until the last minute to call it is very difficult to schedule hours. Calling well in advance will be of great help to us and will give the student the best possibility of completing hours in a timely fashion.


  • Students must be 16 years old or older, but 14 & 15 year-old volunteers can be accompanied by an adult.
  • Students are expected to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Provocative and revealing clothing is not allowed.
  • Come prepared to work.
