Volunteerism is essential to Women’s Bean Project’s successful operations. In addition to our volunteer Board of Directors, each year a corps of nearly 250 volunteers offer their time and talent in support of our mission. Volunteers represent Women’s Bean Project to the public in a variety of ways, including representing us at sales events, by helping to recruit program participants and encouraging employers in the community to hire Bean Project graduates. Volunteer groups offer extra hands and high spirits working alongside our women, helping with special projects and seasonal grounds keeping needs.
Please note: Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Volunteering with the the Bean Project can be very flexible. Some people volunteer weekly, while others help just a few times a year. We simply ask that you honor and take seriously any commitment that you make to Women’s Bean Project.

Because our program and production schedules are cyclical in nature, our volunteer needs ebb and flow depending on the time of year. Our greatest need for volunteers occurs between September-December; however we have sporadic needs throughout the year. If there are no opportunities available when you contact us, we’ll gladly add you to our volunteer email list so you will be notified as opportunities arise. Here a are just a few examples of volunteer activities available at Women’s Bean Project:
- Mentor a program participant.
- Teach program classes such as computer basics, financial literacy, budgeting, planning and organizing and job preparedness.
- Help the program participants document their stories.
- Provide administrative support in any of our departments.
