Volunteer Opportunities


The hand of the giver is always on top.

The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis seeks caring, talented, giving individuals to help carry out the agency’s mission and goals.   Without volunteers, the Urban League would be far more limited in what it can do for our community. 

Volunteers serve as grandparents in our Head Start program.  They are mentors to at-risk youth.  They devote their expertise and know-how on program committees, distribute food in food pantries, and answer phones at receptionist desks. 

Currently, more than 600 individuals contribute to make a tremendous difference in Urban League services. 

Urban League volunteers do it all, because they want to make a difference. Do you?
