VOLUNTEER AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES - BE A PART OF OUR TEAM!
Give back and support local families with Stepping Stones volunteer opportunities or learn more about employment opportunities.
Learn about available positions and make an appointment to meet with our Volunteer Coordinator today.
Volunteers - Before You Begin
Volunteers are vital to the success of our Stepping Stones social enterprises and services and are always needed at all of our locations. Volunteer Positions are available at our Thrift Stores, Recovery and Support Group Specialty Bookstores, Administrative Office, and Step One Community Centers. Additionally, we have AMAZING people volunteering in our emergency shelter, transitional living program, and on our Helpline. The guidelines for volunteering in our advocacy program are a bit more rigid than at our other locations. Fingerprint clearance, background checks, CPR/First Aid training, and a 52-hour orientation/training program must be completed before you can begin. However, we are always looking for people who are the right fit to help provide these services for our community.
If that is something you’re interested in, please print and complete the Volunteer Application below. Contact Jesus at 928.772.4184 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about all volunteer opportunities.
Our volunteer team is perfect for any individual looking for work experience, needing community service hours, or wanting to make a positive impact in our community!
For more information, contact Jesus at 928.772.4184 or by email at email@example.com.

Employment Opportunities and Job Application
Employment Opportunities: We occasionally have openings at our various social enterprises and with our social service programs. Volunteers who are already familiar with our programs and who have already been trained get priority placement when openings become available. However, occasionally there is an opening for someone with a specialized skill set.
Please feel free to email your resume at any time to Denise@SteppingStonesAZ.org call our Administrative Office at 928.772.4184 to inquire about specific openings. We are lucky to have such a great, committed team, but because of this, very few new employment opportunities become available.
