Volunteer

Looking for a place to roll up your sleeves and to contribute service and ministry?

Come to Laurelville to participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities, ranging from office work to guest services to construction and maintenance projects.

We have flexible opportunities from a few hours to a few years.

  • Youth Groups
  • School Service Trips
  • Internships
  • Long-term full-time or part-time positions

There’s no minimum or limit to the amount of service you can provide: come for a few hours on a weekday afternoon, donate a weekend, or even commit to a whole year of voluntary service (VS). If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.

What kinds of volunteer opportunities are there?

Volunteer opportunities vary in nature, from maintenance and construction projects to office work to attending to the needs of our guests. They also range in length of service, from an hour or two on a Saturday afternoon to year-long voluntary service placements. We do our best to match your gifts and experiences with the needs we have here at Laurelville. Chances are we can find something that suits your interest.

Volunteer Wishlist

  • Replacing the vinyl on the seats and backs of our Solarhouse chairs.

Are there larger work projects?

Yes. We have hosted volunteer groups of 25-30 for larger projects (e.g. roofing, landscaping, etc.) and can find a project that matches your group’s interests.

Do I have to spend my whole visit volunteering?

Absolutely not! We want you to enjoy all of the gifts Laurelville has to offer during your visit. Frequently volunteers will take advantage of nearby Ohiopyle and Pittsburgh attractions, including whitewater rafting, Fallingwater, museums and sporting events. Let us know how we can structure your schedule so that you have the chance to visit these and other sights in the area.

Will you provide me and my group with a place to stay?

Yes, you will have a place to stay while you do volunteer work here at Laurelville. We will provide you with lodging and meals at a discounted rate or for free, depending on the length of your stay and the amount of work your group intends to accomplish. It ‘s our way of thanking you for your generous service to the ministry of Laurelville.

Long-term Opportunities

There are seasons in your life—post-graduation, retirement, or other times of transition—when you might want to invest several weeks to a whole year (or more) engaged in service. These long-term service opportunities meet some of our greatest needs while providing you with the rewarding opportunity to explore your gifts in a ministry setting while providing Christlike service and hospitality to the many guests who visit our grounds.
