Help neighbors of Heartside Art Gallery of Studio drawing, painting, jewelry-making, pottery, sewing, weaving, and woodwork. Most are self-taught artists, mainly people who are homeless or poor. As a volunteer, you will assist and encourage the artists with their projects and offer constructive support. You are free to create your own art as well! The gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00am-3:30pm. Many small shifts are available. An art background is preferred.                                                                                         

Get to know the refugees in your own community and empower them to get acquainted with their new life in the United States as a Refugee Cultural Mentor. Building a relationship with a refugee could include: practicing English, learning to ride the bus, cooking together, grocery shopping, going to the library, learning an instrument, job coaching, visiting museums, and more-the possibilities are endless!
