Help us end violence in our community by volunteering at Middle Way House.  You can make a difference by volunteering as little 1.5 hours per week. Numerous opportunities exist at our Bloomington locations and our outreach offices in Greene, Martin and Owen counties. Volunteers make it possible for us to provide around-the-clock support to survivors.

All volunteers must participate in one of our eight-hour volunteer training sessions held throughout the year. Pre-registration is not required. You may complete the Volunteer Application and bring it with you to the training, although it may also be completed on-site during the break.

2020 Volunteer Training Dates: 
 June 13th, September 5th & 12th, and December 5th.

UPDATE: More information about our next training on December 5th will be posted soon. It will likely be held via Zoom like our past few trainings. 

Trainings are held from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Downtown Transit Center located at the corner of 3rd Street & Walnut There will be a one-hour break for lunch (12:00-1:00 pm). Participants may bring a lunch or go out to eat.

Check back as we will post future dates and locations.

Volunteer program descriptions:

Middle Way House offers a large variety of opportunities to volunteer, many of which allow volunteers to satisfy time and activity requirements for Service Learning classes and university-sponsored internships. Below is a link to short descriptions of volunteer positions for which volunteers are needed.  In addition to the initial eight-hour general volunteer training, most volunteer positions require an additional orientation session (1-2 hours) and many require additional training as outlined within individual descriptions.
