Make a Difference with Hope for Suffolk!

Do you want to be a part of a life-changing initiative? We would love to talk with you about opportunities! Our leadership team is dedicated to investing in our youth and we have a lot of fun doing it. We equip our team with training and support.

Meal Providers

Having a meal together provides a unique opportunity for relationships and connection between our interns and volunteers. Meal Providers bring and serve dinner to our crew of 45 people on Wednesdays at 6 PM, right before our weekly workshops.

Commitment

Sign up for as many or as few Wednesday dinners as you want. Deliver and serve dinner from 6 PM to 6:30 PM on the date you select. Great opportunity for your small group, neighborhood friends or whole family to volunteer together!

Want to serve but don’t have time to cook? Pizza or Subway sandwich platters always work.

Farm Volunteers

Work alongside our interns or on your own schedule. You can “adopt a spot”, bring your colleagues for a volunteer day or serve regularly with our interns. Working together provides a wonderful setting for transformational conversations that point people to Jesus.

Intern workdays are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays

  • School year: 3:30 to 6 PM (March – May, September – October)
  • Summer: 9 to 11:30 AM (June – August)

Allies (AKA Mentors)

Allies work with our youth interns to provide encouragement, support and prayer during our weekly workshops on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 PM. The relationship between an ally and their designated student-interns is transformational! Allies work in pairs with a small group of interns from March through August.

(Being an ally) has been one of the greatest privileges and blessings of my life. It gave me pause to realize our students have struggled and overcome incredible trials in their lives. I found myself looking forward to class and really sad when it ended.
