In addition to our Daily Free Meals program, we have many other programs that need long-term, dedicated volunteers. Open volunteer positions are listed below.

If you are interested in an open volunteer position, please fill out a GLIDE Volunteer Application and submit your cover letter and resume to Lsmall@glide.org. Please specify in your email subject line which position you are interested in. If we think it might be a good fit, we will contact you for an interview and any next steps.

Please note that we no longer require volunteer orientations for long-term volunteers. If you are interested in learning more about our meals program volunteering, we provide 30-minute orientations Monday through Friday at 9:00 am, 11:00 am, and 3:00 pm.
