Are you passionate about making a difference?

Tubman relies on volunteers and interns to make a difference in every facet of our work. The passion and energy of our amazing volunteers and interns is essential to the daily work of our organization, and to support our clients and community.

We encourage applications from people of color, all genders, multilingual speakers, veterans, and those who have disabilities.

We offer a five-part orientation and training series for Tubman volunteers and interns. Most volunteer and internship positions require attendance at all five sessions, with positions beginning after training has been completed. The dates for our current training series are listed below, and you can click here to download a flyer with our upcoming January 2020 training schedule and further details.
