We have well-established programs for college and high school students to work with us.

Teen Ambassadors

Mitzvah Circle’s Teen Ambassador Program provides a unique opportunity for high school students to make a difference in the world and develop leadership skills.

Teen Ambassadors are students entering 9th – 12th grades. This unique leadership program combines service and personal development in a select program that trains high school students to act as guides for new volunteers at our warehouse.


• Participate in an orientation for students and parents/guardians.

• Teen Ambassador Training – Coming December 2020 and June/July 2021 – Dates TBD

• After training, volunteer at least 12 times as a “Group Leader”. Teen Ambassadors lead groups of new volunteers in packing boxes of personalized necessities for families in need and in other projects in the warehouse.

→ Teen Ambassadors can volunteer during any available Warehouse Volunteer shift.

Students who continue serving as Teen Ambassadors after their first year can become Leadership Fellows, helping to train new groups of Teen Ambassadors.

Application Process: Interested teens should email [email protected] and we will contact them when training session dates are determined.

Carly Dougherty, Volunteer Coordinator, will email applicants with instructions on how to register for the program for all accepted applicants.

Internships for College Students

An internship with Mitzvah Circle is an excellent opportunity for students seeking real-world experience in all aspects of a grass roots, non-profit organization. Interns will work directly with staff, volunteers, and other social service organizations.

Mitzvah Circle hosts undergraduate and graduate interns every semester – spring, summer, and fall. Internships are in Social Work, Non-Profit Administration, Marketing/Event Management, and Facilities Management.
